Kummer, Clare

(1873?-1958)
   Clare Rodman Beecher was related to Henry Ward Beecher and Harriet Beecher Stowe. Her professional name was that of her first husband, playwright Frederick Arnold Kummer, which she kept after their divorce and during her longer marriage to Arthur Henry. As Clare Kummer, she became well known as a songwriter in the 1900s, so the name recognition served her well when she turned to playwriting in 1912. Good Gracious Annabelle (1916) remained the best-known of her many sprightly comedies, which included A Successful Calamity (1917), Be Calm, Camilla (1918), Rollo 's Wild Oat (1920), and Her Master's Voice* (1933).
