Content: Portrait of James Bridie mounted on card. Head and shoulders view. Photograph. James Bridie was the non de plume of Dr. Henry Osbourne Mavor. Bridie assumed this pen name as he did not want his theatrical work to affect his position as a practicing doctor. Previously he had used the pen name of Mary Henderson, but adopted the name James Bridie in the late 1920s. Towards the end of the 40s, Bridie used another name, J. P. Kellock, when he co-wrote 'The Tintock Cup' with George Munro. One of Bridie's greatest achievements was the creation of the Glasgow Citizens' Theatre Company in 1943. This company has arguably been one of the most important Scottish theatre developments of the 20th century.
