Biographical / Historical
Noted screenwriters Gloria Katz (October 25, 1942-November 25, 2018) and Willard M. Huyck Jr. (September 8, 1945-) met as film students in the 1960s and married in 1969. They worked closely with George Lucas, writing for films such as
American Graffiti
,
Star Wars
(uncredited), and
Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom
. They also wrote, with Huyck directing and Katz producing,
Howard the Duck
.
In addition to their careers in the film industry, Katz and Huyck collected art, with particular interest in Japanese photography from the 19th century to the present era. Images from their collection were published in
Views of Japan
(Steidl, 2017). The Freer Gallery of Art and Arthur M. Sackler Gallery acquired their collection of Japanese photographs in 2018; the 19th century photographs came to the Freer and Sackler Archives. Katz and Huyck's interests extended beyond Japan, as evidenced by Colin Murray's "Group of Yogis," donated to the Archives in 2015.
