Summary The Mabel Washburn-William H. Cobb correspondence consists of letters written between Feb. 15 and March 27, 1922, concerning a proposed motion picture based on the life of George Washington. The project was the idea of Major Cobb, who contacted historian Washburn for assistance in turning his notes into a film script. Also included are various drafts of Major Cobb's notes and two outlines for a scenario. It appears that the proposed film was never made.
