Every, Carolyn N. "Home life of the Lunts"

Home Life of the Lunts is a memoir written by Carolyn Every who worked as a cook in the Genesee Depot home of Alfred Lunt (1893-1977) and Lynn Fontanne (1887-1983), a Wisconsin couple that earned fame in the early 20th century as stage actors. Every details the daily activities of Lunt and Fontanne and describes the features of their home as well as touching on some of the professional activities engaged in by Lunt and Fontanne in the 1930s. Every also traveled to Cleveland, Philadelphia, Washington D.C. and New York City with Lunt and Fontanne as they starred in the Broadway show “Design for Living.” (13 pages)
