Biographical Sketch

Born in St. Paul, Minnesota on December 22, 1885, Rita Kissin moved with her parents to Russia at the age of four. After living in Russia and Germany, she returned to America at the age of fourteen to complete her education. In 1914, Kissin graduated from the Second International Montessori Training Course in Rome. On her return to America, she organized and operated Montessori kindergartens in Larchmont, New York, and Madison, New Jersey. In 1916, Kissin began lecturing for the New York Board of Education on European travel and the Montessori Method. She also spoke and campaigned for a variety of political causes, including women's suffrage, the rehabilitation of disabled soldiers, and the defeat of the League of Nations treaty. She campaigned on behalf of Charles Evans Hughes in 1916, and Warren Harding in 1920. During the late 1910's, she was also an investigator with the Internal Revenue Service.

She moved to California in the early 1920's, and worked briefly as a writer for the Universal Film Company. During the 1920's, she wrote publicity stories for Mary Pickford, Cecil DeMille and others, and became a Hollywood correspondent for the Frankfurter Zeitung of Germany. She also did public relations work on several large charity campaigns, including the "Save Monticello" Campaign, the Actors' Fund Campaign in New York City, and several others.

In the early 1930's, Kissin studied psychology at the New School for Social Research, and worked briefly as a psychiatric assistant to Dr. Beran Wolfe. From 1936 to 1942, she organized lecture groups on current events, and assisted in several anti-Nazi boycotts and campaigns. In the years following, she wrote publicity material for the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, and acted as a consultant in the Montessori Method to schools in Honolulu.

Kissin's first children's book was published in 1937. The Chimney Sweep Tower was about the son of an unemployed chimney sweep in Germany, and his dream of becoming a violinist. Between 1937, and 1947, she published six more children's stories, all picture books. In 1948, Kissin published This Precious Dust, her only published book for adults.

Scope and Content

The "Published Books" Series has a typescript relating to Raffy and the Honkebeest, a picture book about the adventures of a young giraffe. The collection also has a bound galley and reviews for an adult novel, This Precious Dust, about a Jewish refugee, and her experiences with prejudice in Germany and America.

The "Unpublished Books" Series has material, mostly typescripts, relating to several psychological novels ("The Doctor Takes His Medicine," "The House That Fear Built"), a picaresque novel ("Four Thousand Tons of Candles") and a children's book ("Mouchie, Where's Your Tail"). Regardless of their interest in this collection, researchers may want to consult Ms. Kissin's unpublished autobiography, "I Had to Find God."

The "Plays" Series contains typescripts for ten plays, one of which seems to have been published (That's All For Tonight). The "Short Stories, Articles and Poems" Series contains several children's short stories, and some articles dealing with Hollywood in the 1920's. For some of these, the series contains typescripts, for others it includes the published article. The Correspondence Series is arranged chronologically and deals with all aspects of Kissin's life, professional, personal and social.

The "Montessori" Series relates to Kissin's long association with this method of teaching. One subseries deals with Kissin's early experience, including photographs taken while attending the Second International Montessori School. Some of these photographs include Maria Montessori. This subseries also contains clippings, photographs and teaching notes pertaining to two Montessori schools which Kissin operated in the U.S. during the late 1910's. Several decades later, Kissin consulted and trained in Montessori methods at a school in Honolulu. The series includes a diary of this experience, as well as some clippings and photos. A third subseries contains several articles written by Kissin concerning her experiences with and insights into the Montessori Method.

Kissin spent most of the 1920's living in Los Angeles, and became involved herself professionally and socially with the show business community. She was a show business journalist, writing primarily for German newspapers and magazines. Some of these articles are included in the "Short Stories, Articles, and Poetry Series." The material in the "Hollywood" Series deals primarily with Kissin's social and civic activities. With Mary Pickford, Kissin organized a campaign to save trees in Hollywood. Kissin was very active in the Actors' Fund of America, created to assist retired or impoverished ex-actors, and lead by New York producer Daniel Frohman. She was also involved in efforts to build and support independent theaters in Hollywood. Theater Mart was a result of this campaign, and Kissin's play "Sensation" was its first production. Material concerning Theater Mart and "Sensation" are in the "Plays" Series. Though there are some letters, event programs and other ephemeral items, newspaper clippings and photographs comprise most of the material in this series. There are numerous photographs relating to the Actors' Campaign Fund. Another file contains publicity stills, some autographed, of actors and actresses. The series also includes several folders of Hollywood photographs, mostly unidentified or labeled in German.

In the 1930's, Kissin worked as a psychologist, assisting Beran Wolfe. The collection includes Kissin's research notes on psychology and ESP, as well as some case files for patients.

During the 1960's, Kissin worked for the Arizona-Sonora Desert Museum, writing a history and description of this institution. This series contains research materials, a manuscript, typescripts, and photographs.

The "Photographs" Series includes some personal photos. It also contains photographs of various subjects of interest to Ms. Kissin, such as a theatrical production in Pasadena, Seminole Indians, and the San Francisco Puppet Theater. M

The "Alphabetical Files" Series contains a file of biographical information on Rita Kissin. Kissin was close friends with Kate Crane-Gartz, a left-wing activist in California during the first half of the twentieth century. This series contains four folders of Crane-Gartz's transcribed correspondence. There is also a file of material, mostly newspaper clippings, on Kissin's retirement activities in Green Valley, Nevada. Kissin also collected pamphlets relating to Germany during and after World War II. Another file of clippings relates to Kissin's political activities in the late 1910's, and early 1920's.
