Dear Shaded Viewers,

Working on my autobiography has me scanning the archives. Thanks to my interns there is some kind of order to them.

This was big excitement for me, my first WWD cover and above is an image from inside. Ben Brantley, currently the New York Times theatre critic was my first editor at WWD. I remember he has 9 planets in Scorpio.
