Feb. 4, 1942, Marian Anderson

Marian Anderson performs at Philharmonic Auditorium in a recital of works by Bach, Handel, Scarlatti, Rachmaninoff and Gretchaninoff, who is not a composer I recognize. Anderson concludes with spirituals, which Times critic Isabel Morse Jones suggests be done without accompaniment.

Feb. 4, 1942: Hedda Hopper asks, "While I'm carping, why can't El Capitan Theater be named the De Mille? Sid Grauman has a theater named after him."

Too bad she’s not around to hear the answers.
