From Lake Forest College, Its Town and Its City of Chicago, written by Franz Schulze, Rosemary Cowler, and Arthur H. Miller comes this elaboration of Mary Aldis' theatrical involvement: "As Lake Forest [College] became more involved in the downtown theater community, too, the Garrick Club, a student theater group that still flourishes today, formed in 1904. Professor John Mantel Clapp, who took over as director of the club in 1906, was known for his involvement with Chicago theater, and for nurturing theater on campus. Lake Forest residents also brought up groups from the city. Mary Aldis, the wife of Chicago developer Arthur Aldis, invited the amateur Hull House Players from Chicago to perform at the Durand Art Institute and established an influential community theater on her estate, where many students and faculty performed. But with the end of World War I, the start of the Red scare, and the subsequent Great Depression, there were fewer activities on campus, reflecting the 'chilled' cultural climate in Chicago. However, the late 1950s and 1960s ushered in a renewed interest in culture with frequent events and art exhibits at the Durand Art Institute."—Lake Forest College > Alumni > Spectrum > Fall 05 > The Cultural Campus, http://www.lakeforest.edu/alumni/spectrum/fall05/theculturalcampus.asp, accessed January 25, 2008.
