Boyce, Neith


Boyce, Neith
(1872-1951)
   Daughter of the cofounder of the Los Angeles Times, Neith Boyce initially chose a career in journalism, and in 1899, became the first woman reporter on the Commercial Advertiser in New York, while writing novels on the side. That year she married Hutchins Hapgood, a colleague on the newspaper. They joined the ferment of artistic life in Greenwich Village. Spending the summer of 1915 in Provincetown on Cape Cod, Boyce and Hapgood—with Susan Glaspell, George Cram Cook, and Eugene O'Neill—founded the Provincetown Players. Her one-act play Constancy was produced that summer and was revived there in summer 1916 along with her Winter's Night and one coauthored with her husband, Enemies. Her one-act The Two Sons was produced as part of the Provincetown Players' first full season in New York (1916-1917).
