My name is Alicia Mayer and I am a grandniece of Louis B. Mayer.
My family helped create Hollywood and in this blog, Hollywood Essays, I reach into our collection of rare photos to remember them and the filmmakers and stars they worked with. Their stories are amazing and they deserve to be told and remembered.
By day, I am a book editor in the arcane area of corporate governance, but I am also working on several personal projects regarding early film history.
I spent most of my childhood in New Mexico and many summers with “the oldies” in Los Angeles listening to their stories.
I have lived in Australia for many years and currently live in Sydney. Mayer is a maternal last name which I choose to use as a pen name.
