Series 1 Ambassador Hotel 1921-2008

Physical Description: 22 boxes, 5 oversized boxes, 1 item in one map case drawer

Scope and Content Note

Series 1 contains information about the Ambassador Hotel and Cocoanut Grove collected by Margaret Tante Burk. The Ambassador Hotel opened in 1921 and closed in 1989. Located at 3400 Wilshire Boulevard, the hotel stood as a hub of Los Angeles social life. It and its famous Cocoanut Grove nightclub was a center of Hollywood night life. The hotel hosted Academy Awards ceremonies and other entertainment events, such as film shoots; political rallies; and fundraisers for charities. Performers such as Bing Crosby, Liza Minelli, Frank Sinatra, and Rudy Vallee performed at the Cocoanut Grove. Movie stars, politicians, and royalty all stayed at the Ambassador Hotel. The hotel was also the scene of one of the more important events in Los Angeles and national history: the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy in 1968.
Items in this series include newspaper clippings, postcards, correspondence, interdepartmental bulletins (memoranda, photographs, menus and brochures, flyers and invitations for events at the Ambassador Hotel and Cocoanut Grove. Particularly valuable are telegrams between John Browne, the manager of the hotel, and Rudy Vallee, a popular musician in the 1930s and 1940s, discussing the appearances of Rudy Vallee at the Cocoanut Grove, in Box 3, Folder 5. Other items of note include letters in Box 10, Folder 11, sent to the Ambassador Hotel after the assassination of Robert Kennedy and a program for a performance by Irene Castle at the Cocoanut Gove, found in Box 11, folder 16. The dates of this series range from 1921 to 2008.
The titles that Margaret Tante Burk assigned to the folders are found in parentheses at the beginning of the ''Contents'' field. If the content field does not have a title in parenthesis at the beginning, this indicates that these items were loose within the collection.
Series 6: Personal and Professional Papers contains some material on the Ambassador Hotel in the form of correspondence that was mixed in with her personal correspondence.

Series 3 Round Table West 1960-2007

Physical Description: 25 archival document boxes

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of the records of the "Round Table West," a prominent book club in which Margaret Tante Burk played a key role, both as co-founder and as director. Partners in a public relations firm, Margaret Tante Burk and Marilyn Hudson, at the instigation of their friend the renowned journalist Adela Rogers St. John, founded Round Table West in 1977. Hudson would become the organization's executive director, while Margaret Tante Burk served as the chair. Round Table West's meetings centered on a luncheon, where authors, often celebrities, discussed their work. According to Publisher's Weekly, this luncheon was the largest held by any book club in the United States. From its initial meeting place at the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, Round Table West grew, hosting three meetings at month, with 200 to 600 people in attendance. The meetings covered much of Southern California: the La Quinta Club and Resort in La Quinta, California; the Beverly Wilshire, in Beverly Hills, California; and in Orange County, either at the Balboa Bay Club or else at the Newport Beach Country Club. Authors and celebrities who presented books included Maya Angelou, Benny Goodman, Joseph Wambaugh, and Ray Bradbury. By 2005, in the twenty-eighth year of its existence, Round Table West claimed to have hosted 3,000 authors.
Besides hosting book forums at luncheons, Margaret Tante Burk, through Round Table West's "Books for the Bookless" program, collected, and then distributed, 2,000 books to hospitals, libraries, and prison.
By 2006, Round Table West had begun to cease functioning, and is now defunct. Materials in this collection include correspondence, meeting and promotional flyers, newspaper clippings, press releases, and black and white and color photographs documenting the history of Round Table West. Photographs of authors at Round Table West include Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, Carol Channing, Ginger Rogers, and Joseph Wambaugh. The dates of the holdings in this series fall between 1960 and 2007. The titles that Margaret Tante Burk assigned to the folders are found in parentheses at the beginning of the "Contents" field.
Series 6: Personal and Professional Papers contains some material on Round Table West in the form of correspondence that was mixed in with Maragret Tante Burk's personal correspondence.

Series 4 Ambassador Hotel Book 1923-2005

Physical Description: 14 boxes

Scope and Content Note

Building on her career at, and love for, the Ambassador Hotel, Margaret Tante Burk wrote a book entitled Are the Stars Out Tonight? The Story of the Famous Ambassador and Cocoanut Grove Hollywood's Hotel. The book was published in 1980 but by 1995 was out of print; in 2003 another run of the book was printed. Besides treating the history of the hotel and the Cocoanut Grove, the book is well illustrated with invaluable photographs of celebrities and personages who lived, dined and danced, and entertained at the Ambassador and the Cocoanut Grove. In short it captures the spirit of a bastion of the golden age of Hollywood from the 1920s through the 1950s.
This series consists of the subject files that Margaret Tante Burk relied on to write her book. The titles that Margaret Tante Burk assigned to the folders are found in parentheses at the beginning of the "Contents" field. The original order of the folders was not discernible; thus, the arrangement in the box and folder list does not reflect this. The Ambassador Hotel and the Cocoanut Grove had no archives, so these are materials that Margaret Tante Burk gathered during the course of her research on the hotel and night club. They consist of newspaper clippings; Margaret Tante Burk's personal notes on her research and writing; correspondence; photographs and negatives; hotel and Cocoanut Grove records, such as bookings, press releases, and call sheets for films shot at the hotel; and hotel brochures (often photocopies). Also included are records of the production, sales, and promotion of the book. Because Stars was printed under the auspices of the Round Table West, the notable book club that Margaret Tante Burk co-founded, there is some material from the club intermixed with this series.
Series 6: Personal and Professional Papers contains some material on the Ambassador Hotel in the form of correspondence that was mixed in with her personal correspondence.

Scope and Content Note

Series 5 consists of photographs, negatives, and color transparencies of the Ambassador Hotel and the Cocoanut Grove that Margaret Tante Burk collected over her long association with these businesses. The photographs are both black and white and color, and range in size from 3x5 color polaroids to panoramic black and white photographs. Professional photographers such as Darlene Hammond and Irv Antler were responsible for the photographs; besides professional photographers, many of the photographs are personal, shot by such persons as Margaret Tante Burk herself. Loyola Marymount University does not assume copyright responsibility for these photographs or other images and will not reproduce them.
This series has been arranged into two subseries. Subseries A contains photographs of celebrities and personages at the Hotel or the Cocoanut Grove, as well as publicity stills of celebrities with whom Margaret Tante Burk had personal or professional contact. In this series, such movie stars as Paul Newman and Judy Garland and Humphrey Bogart can be seen at the Cocoanut Grove or entertainers such as Ray Charles and the Andrews Sisters performing at the nightclub.
The photographs of Subseries A are particularly valuable for the documentation that they provide of events involving celebrities and personages at the Hotel and Grove, such as television specials taped there or press conferences; an example of the former is a Muppets television special (1979), that of the latter a press conference of South Vietnamese Vice President Nguyen Cao Ky at the height of the Vietnam War in the 1960s.
Subseries B contains photographs and transparencies of the grounds, buildings, and facilities of the Ambassador Hotel as well as events held at the Hotel. Photographs of the facilities and rooms of the hotel include its bungalows, courtyards and gardens, rooms, swimming pool, and dining rooms, such as the Venetian Room. The chronological span of the photographs of the layout and grounds of the Hotel reaches from the 1920s to the 1980s, thereby providing an excellent overview of what a luxury hotel looked like in Los Angeles over the course of the twentieth century. In particular the photographs of the Hotel made in the 1940s by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (cf. Box 3) document in detail the facilities and operations of a luxury hotel.
The photographs of this series also richly document the Cocoanut Grove, the world-famous nightclub that was part of the Ambassador Hotel. These photographs include the interior and exterior of the Grove in its first manifestation from 1921 to 1957, the year of its first remodel, and then its renovation in the early 1970s by Sammy Davis, Jr., among others.
This subseries also documents hotel activities, such as employee awards or managerial staff on the job at the Ambassador Hotel.

Series 6 Personal and Professional Papers 1955-2009

Physical Description: 16 boxes, 3 oversized boxes, 3 items in one map case drawer

Scope and Content Note

Series 6 consists of loose papers and subject files that came with collection, without discernable original order (something true of the collection as a whole). The holdings cover such matters as the club for friends that Margaret Tante Burk formed around the astrological sign Leo, called "Love a Leo." There are also subject files that Margaret Tante Burk compiled on personal acquaintances such as Robert Young or Adela Rogers St. John. The correspondence includes some material related to the Ambassador Hotel or the Round Table West or both; it was included in this series because it was filed with personal letters or all three subjects were filed together. The series also includes black and white and color photographs of Margaret Tante Burk, her friends and families, and her activities. Finally, this series contains the only information on Margaret Tante Burk's membership in the Lions Club; she was the first woman admitted to this club (Box 3, Folder 20). The titles that Margaret Tante Burk assigned to the folders are found in quotation marks at the beginning of the "Contents" field.
