Collection Description

Historical Note

Mary Nell Santacroce (1918-1999) was born in Atlanta, Georgia, where she lived for most of her life, pursuing a career in teaching and in acting. She earned an A.B. degree in theatre from the University of Georgia in 1939. After a short period in New York City, where she attempted to launch a career in theatre, Santacroce returned to Atlanta and married Hugh Ivey. They had two children, John and Dana Ivey, and were later divorced. From 1948 to 1965 Santacroce was instructor of speech and drama at Georgia Institute of Technology, where she met her second husband, Daniel (Dante) Santacroce. She earned a master's degree in speech therapy from Emory University in 1952 and began working with deaf children at the Atlanta School for the Deaf (formerly the Junior League School for the Deaf). She also taught speech therapy and speech arts in the public schools in DeKalb County and in Marietta, Georgia. She taught drama and directed plays at Georgia State University from 1965-1972 and continued to do private tutoring. She also accepted acting roles in theatre, film, and television. Santacroce was active in regional theatre until her death on February 17, 1999.
