Maurine Dallas Watkins

Maurine Dallas Watkins (July 27, 1896 – August 10, 1969) was an American journalist and playwright. In the 1920s she wrote the stage play ''Chicago'' (1926), about women accused of murder, the press, celebrity criminals, and the corruption of justice. Her play had a successful run on Broadway, during the roaring twenties — the play was then adapted twice for film. Watkins went on to write screen-plays in Hollywood, eventually retiring to Florida. After her death in 1969, ''Chicago'' was adapted in 1977 as a successful Broadway stage musical, which developed into an award winning 2002 film version. Provided by Wikipedia
