Detailed Collection Information

Biographical Note

David Weiss (1909-2002) was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Hyman (a painter) and Rebecca Weiss (nee Goldman). He was orphaned at the age of four and was raised by his Aunt Ida Goldman (his mother’s sister), who owned a Russian restaurant across the street from the Academy of Music and which was frequented by famous composers. Weiss received his bachelor’s degree in merchandising from Temple University in 1933, after which he held about fifty different jobs (including stevedore, hosiery dye worker, welfare worker, store clerk, ghost writer, and basketball and swimming instructor), all while playwriting on the side, before deciding to move to New York to pursue theater work in 1942. He soon obtained a position as secretary to Erwin Piscator, then head of the Dramatic Workshop at the New School for Social Research. Around 1945, Weiss was chosen for a Fellowship in Playwriting and Directing at the New School (after being fired as Piscator’s secretary), where he taught playwriting, assisted John Gassner with editorial work, and became an assistant director for The Actors’ Studio. He also spent a number of years as a freelance story editor for David O. Selznick and Selznick Studios, where he worked on the films “Tender is the Night” and “A Farewell to Arms.” Simultaneously, he did freelance editorial work for a number of other Hollywood studios (including Paramount, RKO, and Vanguard Films).

Weiss published his first novel, The Guilt Makers, in 1953, and he was honored with the Frieder Literary Award for best novel on a Jewish theme published in America. He went on to publish ten other novels, most of them biographical fiction: The Spirit and the Flesh (1959; inspired by the life of Isadora Duncan), Naked Came I (1963; a biography of August Rodin, and his most successful book), Justin Moyan (1965; based on the career of Marlon Brando, whom Weiss knew at the New School), Sacred and Profane (1968; a biography of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart), The Assassination of Mozart (1970; based on Mozart’s mysterious death), No Number is Greater than One (1972; inspired by the Watergate scandal), Myself, Christopher Wren (1974; based on the life of architect Christopher Wren), Physician Extraordinary (1975; based on the life of 17th-century physician William Harvey), The Venetian (1976; based on the life of painter Titian), and I, Rembrandt (1979; based on the life of Rembrandt). In addition to his published novels, he penned several other novels based on the lives and careers of notable personalities (D. W. Griffith, Alma Mahler, and Pablo Picasso), works of fiction about the publishing industry, a summer camp, and Mozart time traveling to the present day, and short biographies of General Omar N. Bradley and actor Sam Jaffe, as well as several memoirs.

He married poet, artist, and playwright Stymean Karlen on November 25, 1945. They were married for fifty-three years before her death in 1998. Karlen’s poetry is featured in Weiss’s published novels as “Preface Poems.” Weiss wrote a biography of Karlen after her death entitled Forever and After. The couple lived in New York, London, and La Jolla, California, during their marriage. Weiss died in La Jolla on November 29, 2002.
