“My mother, Kathleen Virginia Kinsmiller, was from a town called Brainerd, Minnesota. She was a cultured woman who wrote articles for newspapers and magazines, and in 1968, she authored a book, In Search of Audience, about the Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis, a place where she introduced me to people like Jessica Tandy, Henry Fonda, and Elizabeth Taylor.”

 

“I thought my dad was the most intelligent guy in the world. While working as an ob-gyn, he went back to school and got his master’s and doctorate both in theater and English. He went on the road, performing in plays, and became president of the American Community Theater Association. Meanwhile, his practice — Haugen, Fliehr and Meeker — was one of the biggest in the Twin Cities.

“Sadly, my parents weren’t able to start a family of their own. In the mid-1940s, my mother gave birth to a daughter who died so quickly, I’m not sure if she had a name. Afterward, my mother couldn’t become pregnant again, so in 1948 she began corresponding with the Tennessee Children’s Home Society”.
