for unrealized television productions, as well as journals (in German) from the 1920s.
Maria Palmer was an Austrian-born actress. She came to the United States in 1938. Although she was
active in film from around 1943 to 1964, Palmer also worked extensively in radio and television. In later
years Palmer wrote a number of unproduced teleplays, often under the pseudonym Eliot Parker White.
