Howard Sherman, Executive Director, American Theater Wing
During World War II she formed the American Theater Wing War Service, which held benefits to raise money for the war effort while Stage Door Canteens provided hospitality to homesick servicemen. Tony also coordinated 1,500 auditorium programs and 6,700 hospital ward entertainment units at home and abroad.
Teaming with Brock Pemberton, she produced and directed a great run of Broadway hits, including Harvey, the Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy by Mary Chase that ran for seven years. Salt Works Ranch, the family’s ranch in South Park, is the oldest in Colorado and a historical landmark.
