Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains the papers of American writer, producer, and director Albert Lewin (1894-1968) consisting of stills, scrapbooks, manuscripts, business and personal correspondence, publicity, personal photographs, clippings, sheet music, and screenplays.
Albert Lewin (1894–1968) was an American film director, producer, and screenwriter. Lewin graduated from New York University with a B.A. in English, followed by a Masters in English from Harvard University, and subsequently taught at the University of Missouri from 1916 to 1918. He would have gone on to a professorship, if not for a chance viewing of The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), which persuaded him to enter the film business.
