In this chapter the New York Times correctly identifies Lorenz Hart's personal tragedy; but practically all of the other “facts” which preceded it were wrong. Hart never graduated from Columbia, nor did he and Richard Rodgers meet there: Rodgers was still in high school, Hart a long way past postgraduate work. The student body did not invite them to write the 1920 Varsity Show: they wrote one of five that were submitted that year. Hart was not yet translating shows, and when he did, it was not for the Shuberts, but United Plays. Rodgers and Hart did not write The Greenwich Village Follies, although a couple of their songs were used in the touring version of one edition. The book aims to set the record straight. The place to begin is at the beginning: with Max Meyer Hertz and Frieda Eisenberg.
