Description: 1 page on oversize custom fold-out personal letterhead, 16.5 x 5.5 inches, (Tucson) February 22, 1948. In this letter, Behrman responds to a teacher about his literary influences and explains in detail that George Bernard Shaw was his major influence, in part: "...It was all G.B.S., I think, not only the plays themselves, but The Prefaces...it was not merely Shaw's wit; it was the social uses to which he put it. That, I think, was the whole thing...I have found myself wishing that Shaw were young in this inky time..." Accompanied by the original typed envelope. The letter is in near fine condition.

Comments: Behrman was a playwright, screenwriter, and New Yorker contributor, best known for his Broadway plays that commented on contemporary issues.
