The Warren Marr Management files and the House of Marr, Inc. files of the Marr-McGee Family Papers document the early entrepreneurial endeavors of Warren Q. Marr II. Both companies were established by Marr and represented his interests in the creative arts and printing.
In 1942, Marr created his own management company, Warren Marr Management, which promoted budding authors and classical musicians. These files include a brief write-up about Marr, the establishment of his company, correspondence, contracts and paraphernalia relating to Marr’s many clients.
During 1947-1948, Marr presented “five concerts in artistic good taste” at Times and Town Halls in New York which featured five of his clients: Coreania Hayman, soprano; Ozan Marsh, pianist; William Veasey, baritone; Patricia Benkman, pianist; and Kathryn Ward; soprano.
