Flexner, Anne Crawford

(1874-1955)
   Born Anne Laziere Crawford in Georgetown, Kentucky, she graduated from Vassar College in 1895 and married educator Abraham Flexner in 1898. Her first play, Miranda of the Balcony, was the inaugural presentation at Harrison Grey Fiske's Manhattan Theatre in 1901. She then obtained the rights to dramatize Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch (1903), and it became her most produced play. Her other plays include The Marriage Game (1913), The Blue Pearl (1918), All Soul's Eve (1920), and Aged 26 (1936).
