Sincerely, Countie New York, June 4, 1927. We consulted with two Cullen scholars (Thomas Wirth and Charles Molesworth) who believe that Edward is Edward Perry, a Broadway actor and dancer who was known to be sexually intimate with Cullen. They met around 1925 and Perry was an usher in Cullen's wedding to the daughter of W.
