Clare Boothe Luce

a.k.a. Ann Clare Boothe

Author Code: ACBL

Born: Mar. 10, 1903 - New York City, New York, USA

Died: Oct. 9, 1987 - Washington DC, USA

Due to her father's job as a travelling salesman, Clare moved from town to town during her youth. She graduated from high school in New York in 1919. She was drawn to the theatre from an early age and had appeared on the stage by the time she was ten. In 1923, she married George Tuttle Brokaw, the heir to a New York clothing fortune. Brokaw turned out to be an alcoholic and the couple were divorced in 1929. They had a daughter, Ann, who unfortunately was killed in an auto accident when she was only 20. In 1931, Clare published Stuffed Shirts, a collection of short stories which received critical praise. In 1935, she married Henry Robinson Luce, the publisher of Time Magazine and other mainstream journals. The marriage had its ups and downs with affairs on both sides but nevertheless the couple stayed together until Luce's death in 1967. A gifted playwright, Clare produced the satirical comedy, The Women, in 1936 and it became a hit on Broadway, later being produced as a film with Norma Shearer, Rosalind Russell and Joan Crawford. During a career as a writer for Vogue magazine and editor of Vanity Fair, Clare was known for her outstanding wit. In 1942, she was elected to the House of Representatives as a Republican from Connecticut, later serving on the House Military Affairs Committee. She retired from Congress in 1947. During the 1952 presidential election, Clare campaigned for Eisenhower and was subsequently rewarded with an ambassadorship to Italy. She resigned in 1956, but was brought back by Eisenhower in 1959 to be the ambassador to Brazil; but a number of comments she made and the subsequent reaction caused her to resign before she even started. A fervent anti-communist, Clare sponsored anti-Castro groups during the 1960's. In 1973 she was appointed to the President's Foreign Intelligence Advisory Board (PFIAB). President Reagan re-appointed her in 1981. She died from brain cancer in 1987. In addition to her many articles and essays, her works include Kiss the Boys Goodbye (1938), Margin For Error (1940), Europe in the Spring (1940), Child in the Morning (1951) and Slam the Door Softly (1970).
