I'd love to know where this picture is from. It's taken in the Thomas Hart Benton room, where many events happened.

This photo appears in the book "Erwin Piscator and the American Theatre" by Gerhard Probst. (Piscator, the exiled German director and inventor of "Epic Theatre," was running the New School theatre program--in which Williams and Miller studied--at the time.)
