Edith Whitesell Revised R

A science building in the Universityf
is a far cry from the traditional gar-
ret in which struggling playwrights
are said to create their works. But
it was a science building in which
Edith Grossberg Whitesell ire-wrote
her play "Roots" which is to be 'ore-
seinted tonight and tomorrow by -the
Hillel Players at the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre.
Mrs. Whitesell was substituting for
one of the secretaries whose major
work was largely scientific, and had
plenty of spare time in which to write.
Answers Phone All Day
"I was instructed to answer the
phone which rang once or twice a
day," said Mrs. Whitesell and say "I
don't know' to all questions. It
doesn't take much time to say 'I don't
know.' " It was in between "I don't
knows" that "Roots" was revised into
its present form.
Mrs. Whitesell was born in Chicago
where she received her early educa-
tion. After spending her freshman
year at the University of Michigan,
she transferred to the University of
Chicago where she concentrated in
Museum Cataloguer
When she secured her present po-
sition as cataloguer in the Museum of
Anthropology and as secretary to Dr.
Hinsdale, she took two courses in the
University and reworked "Roots."
