After years working in the little theater movement, Adele Nathan became a leading producer of grand theatrical pageants celebrating historical events. Because she often worked with big businesses planning these commemorative occasions, one journalist suggested she assume the title “Dramatic Counsel.” After her first successful pageant marking the 100th anniversary of the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad, “Mrs. Nathan found herself dashing from one city to another in response to requests for help in planning all kinds of celebrations.” 1
