Charlee C.Lambert Papers 1955-2013 (W140)
Born in Madison County, Florida, Charlee Collins Lambert started her career as a playwright, director and advocate for the elderly at age 62. For two decades, her production company produced her plays nationally, promoted the education of professionals and the public about elder abuse, domestic violence, and the changing shape of families, and promoted dialogue about the realities of these complex issues. Much of her writing style included inviting the audience to participate in role-play, and she would write the plays based on these invented scenarios. Some of her commissions included AT&T, Legal Aid, the Medical Ethic Committee at Emory University, and the Office of Aging in Georgia; when performed, all of her plays were accompanied by a post-performance discussion with the audience. She was the co-founder of Georgia’s Council on Elderly Abuse and Neglect and managed its Victim Assistance Line through the Atlanta Legal Aid Society. She served as an expert witness in elder abuse cases, as a consultant on elder abuse, and was on the Board of Advisors for the Fuqua Center for Late Life Depression. She passed away in 2015, aged 92.
