Collection Overview

Biography / History
Henrietta Alice McCrea was born into a wealthy Chicago family in 1888. She was taken to Paris, France, at an early age and spoke French as her native tongue. She was married twice: first to the landscape painter Willard Lloyd Metcalf (1858-1925) and for a short time to the author Marcus Aurelius Goodrich (1897-1991). Both marriages ended in divorce, but she reverted to Metcalf's name for the rest of her life. She and Willard Metcalf had two children, Addison and Rosalind. Additionally, in 1952, she took in a boy named Jacobus Arnoldus who inherited a portion of her estate.
She was an avid fan of theater and actors and amassed a large collection of autographed photographs and other memorabilia. Metcalf also translated French works into English: Alexandre Dumas' play Camille and Anatole France's story Our Lady's Juggler.
In 1928 she began an affair with Thelma Wood, the lover of the novelist Djuna Barnes. This prompted Barnes to satirize Metcalf in her novel, Nightwood. Metcalf appears as the character Jenny Petherbridge. Metcalf and Wood's relationship lasted until 1943, and they did not part on the best of terms.
Metcalf died in 1981. Addison Metcalf went on to found The Henrietta Alice Metcalf Memorial Scholarship at The American Academy of Dramatic Arts in his mother's honor due to her life time love of the theater.
Note: Metcalf often spelled her first name in the French style: Henriette. Henrietta Alice Metcalf, Henriette Alice Metcalf, Henriette McCrea Metcalf, Henrietta McCrea Metcalf, Henrietta Metcalf, and Henriette Metcalf are all forms used during her lifetime and subsequently.
