Maria Britneva

Maria Britneva Lady Maria St. Just was a Russian-British actress, a friend of Tennessee Williams and his literary executor. Maria Britneva was born in Petrograd in the Soviet Union; when she was 13 months old, her mother emigrated to England with her and her brother Vladimir, she was raised in Hammersmith. She represented her paternal grandfather as having been court physician at Tsarskoye Selo and her father as having been murdered in the Soviet purges shortly after she came to England, but there is no record of the former and her father a physician, served in the Red Army, although he was shot by the Stalinists in 1930, was rehabilitated in 1969, while her mother was British by birth, she studied ballet with Tamara Karsavina as a child and was known as "the little grasshopper" for her ability to jump high, but could not pursue a professional career either because she was too small or because of foot trouble and, she said, overly large breasts. She instead studied acting at Michel Saint-Denis's school, John Gielgud employed her in his London theatre company, but he and others considered her a poor actress.

After meeting Tennessee Williams, she moved to New York, where she lived in a small flat in the 1950s and he arranged parts for her in performances of some of his plays. Britneva met Tennessee Williams in 1948 at a party at Gielgud's house, they became lifelong close friends—Williams wrote epitaphs for both her diabetic cousin, with whom she had been raised, her bulldog, who always snarled at him—and she fell in love with him. The biographers of Gore Vidal and James Laughlin, both of whom were close to both her and Williams, describe her as "cast herself in the role of devoted sister-caretaker" and as "Tennessee's confidant and protective demon", she traveled with Williams and his partner Frank Merlo. She was sometimes cruel to the other women in his life, caused him to dismiss his agent Audrey Wood, she was the inspiration for the character of Maggie in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, was the model for the Countess in This Is. In an article published in The New Yorker soon after her death, John Lahr wrote that he believed she reminded him of his mother.

She was protective of him, going so far as to attempt to push his brother Dakin off a catwalk at the Lyceum Theatre after the Broadway opening of Out Cry in 1973. Williams angered her by mentioning her only in his 1975 memoirs, where he dismissed her as "an occasional actress" and "afflicted with folie de grandeur". At her insistence, he wrote an apology saying that editors had cut down his description of "this richly sustaining attachment". However, at the end of his life, his friendship for her was cooling. Williams named Maria St Just co-trustee of the trust for his lobotomized sister, which made her his literary executor since the copyrights to his works were vested in the trust, she fiercely defended his legacy to an extent that many found excessive, such as involving herself in casting and advising actors, denying scholars access to Williams's papers, demanding the right to vet the manuscript of the authorized biography, rescinding permission that Williams had granted to Lyle Leverich for such a biography.

She refused permission for a biography by Margot Peters. Lahr describes her as considering herself "Williams' widow without a ring". In 1990, she published a collection of her correspondence with Williams, adapted for the stage by Kit Hesketh-Harvey. In the book, she changes Brooks Atkinson's review in The New York Times of her 1955 performance Off-Broadway as Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire from a pan to a rave. In addition to Williams, she was romantically linked with James Laughlin, she was rumoured to have slept with Marlon Brando, other affairs included John Huston. In 1956 she married the second Lord St Just. One of them had another good friend, as godfather. Lord St Just died in 1986, she died in London of heart failure as a result of rheumatoid arthritis, is buried at Wilbury House, the Grenfell estate, with her dogs rather than with her in-laws, with whom she had a bad relationship.

Asbestine

Asbestine is a mineral compound composed of nearly pure fibrous magnesium silicate, with physical characteristics between those of asbestos and talc. It is used in paper construction. In antiquity, it was sometimes called linum vivum, used to take advantage of its fire-resistant properties; these uses included making it into napkins and towels, when dirty, were thrown into the fire to clean. It has been used in a cast stone form on house exteriors, such as the Rand House in Minneapolis in 1874. Contemporary applications include use as an extender in paint-based products, although statutory restrictions on how much can be used have long been in place. Trace amounts can be found in talc, which contains asbestos fibers of various types. Studies into health risks associated with talc determined that with so many commercial varieties of talc being types of asbestine minerals, the resultant lung disease—talcosis, which can follow their prolonged inhalation, is a variety of asbestosis; this article incorporates text from a publication now in the public domain: Chambers, Ephraim, ed..
