Example text

She did have difficulty balancing family and two businesses — the girls’ school floundered, but the writer representation business flourished. Despite another devastating death — daughter Agnes died of spinal meningitis just two years after Henry — Beatrice proved resilient. William received some schooling in Freiburg, Germany, before returning to New York and enrolling at Columbia University. Cecil was completing his pre-college schooling at a military academy in Pennsylvania. William took full advantage of what Columbia had to offer.

The marriage of Anna George and William Churchill de Mille took place on March 30, 1903. The two appeared to be deeply devoted to one another. Anna thought her bridegroom a genius; William thought his wife an angel. For a while the De Mille’s Illustrious Background newlyweds lived in the attic studio of Beatrice de Mille’s boarding school. William continued to write and got his first big break with his play Strongheart. Separated from his new bride again while the play toured successfully around the country for much of 1904, William returned home a triumphant playwright at the tender age of twenty-five.

The shortcomings of Agnes’s physical makeup were more than compensated by an incredible endurance. Still, at fourteen, it was little consolation. Her parents’ restrictions made things even more difficult. They limited Agnes to one private lesson of forty-five minutes and one hour-long class lesson a week, while the rest of the students attended every day and practiced together. Agnes insisted on practicing at home. Her mother had a makeshift barre installed in their bathroom and limited her home practice to forty minutes a day.
