Biography

Hal Cooper was born February 23, 1923, in New York, NY. His father was Benjamin Cooper, a Polish coffee broker, and his mother was Adeline Rachimove Cooper. He began his career as a child actor in radio soap operas in 1932. He then starred in Big Brother’s Rainbow House from 1936 to 1940. He enrolled at the University of Michigan theater department in 1940, while continuing his radio career in the Lone Ranger for WXYZ in Detroit. His education was interrupted by military service in WWII from 1943 to 1946. He was a lieutenant (junior grade) in the United States Naval Reserve, Pacific Theater of Operations. He then returned to the University of Michigan and graduated with a B.A. in 1946.

Hal Cooper met his wife, Pat (Mary Patricia) Meikle, at the University of Michigan. They were married December 21, 1944 and had two children, Bethami and Pamela. After graduation, they worked in the Dock St. Theater Company in Charleston, SC, where he was assistant director from 1946 to 1948. They then moved to New York City and became involved in the fledgling television industry, working for the DuMont station. Hal Cooper developed, wrote, produced and acted in three children’s television shows: Your School Reporter (1948-52), Your Television Babysitter (1948-52) and The Magic Cottage (1950-56), all starring Pat Meikle. He also directed and produced many daytime shows from 1950 to 1957, including Search for Tomorrow , the first successful soap opera, and Kitty Foyle .

When the focus of the television industry shifted to the West Coast, Hal Cooper moved there as well, taking a job directing a soap opera in 1958. He was then able to become a director of nightime television, considered more prestigious, starting with the Dick Van Dyke Show (1962) and Death Valley Days (1965-67). Hal Cooper was interested in being more exclusively involved with television comedy. He became one of the regular directors for the well-loved and long-running comedy, I Dream of Jeannie (1965-69) and spent the rest of his career as a director and producer of television comedy. Hal Cooper also appeared as a guest actor on I Dream of Jeannie in “The Second Greatest Con Artist in the World,” 1967, Mayberry RFD in “Goober and the Telephone Girl,” 1969 and The Courtship of Eddie’s Father in “The Encounter Group,” 1971 and “The Investors,” 1972.

Hal Cooper is best known for his work as director and executive producer of Maude (1972-78). He was also executive producer and director of Phyl and Mikhy (1980), Love, Sidney (1982-83), Gimme a Break (1983-87) and Empty Nest (1988-89). He was involved in the development of numerous pilots in the 1970’s and 1980’s. His last project was as a director for Something So Right (1996).

Hal Cooper divorced Pat Meikle in 1970. He married Marta Lucille Salcido, an actress, on June 26, 1971. They had a son, James Benjamin Cooper, in 1972.

Hal Cooper is a member of the Writers Guild of America, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers, the Screen Actors Guild, the American Federation of TV and Radio Artists, the Actors' Equity Association and the Directors Guild of America. He received three Emmy nominations and four Directors Guild Nominations for best comedy director for Maude .

    Scripts and Production Notes [series]:

    (6.75 linear feet, 1962-1996)

    The collection includes scripts from 48 different shows. In the 1960’s, the most important shows are I Dream of Jeannie , The Courtship of Eddie’s Father , Mayberry RFD and That Girl . In the 1970’s he was mostly involved with Maude , as well as The Odd Couple . In the 1980’s, he worked on Gimme a Break , Love, Sidney , Empty Nest and Dear John . There are also scripts for 19 different pilots that he was involved with creating in the 1970’s and 1980’s, and numerous other scripts for scattered episodes of other shows.

    From about 1970, the scripts for episodes Hal Cooper directed are usually heavily annotated with shooting notes. There are also sometimes shooting schedules, cast and crew lists, and revisions to the scripts. Some episodes only have a few pages rather than full scripts, especially from The Courtship of Eddie’s Father and some of the shows with only a few episodes.

    The scripts have been arranged chronologically by year to reflect the progression of Hal Cooper’s career. Within each year, the scripts are arranged alphabetically by show. For each show, episodes are arranged chronologically. For each episode, the title, writer, director, producer and date are given, when the information is available. The date is the final draft date, when there was one. If not, then the date is the latest revision date, the taping date, or the copyright date.

    Scripts for other shows have been bound and are in a separate series, Bound Scripts and Production Notes. For a list of all the shows alphabetically, chronologically, and by the number of episodes, see the appendix at the end of the finding aid.

    Bound Scripts and Production Notes [series]:

    (4 linear feet, 1980-1992) The content of this series is the same kind of material as Scripts and Production Notes, except the material has been bound into volumes. There are scripts from 5 shows and 3 pilots. Hal Cooper developed these projects with Rod Parker, usually in conjunction with Elmar Productions, and was executive producer as well as a director for the shows. Dear John , The Powers That Be , and Gimme a Break all have extensive directorial notations on the scripts for episodes directed by Hal Cooper. The scripts for Love, Sidney and Phyl and Mikhy are the “as broadcast” copies and have no notations.

    The scripts are arranged alphabetically by show. The episodes are listed individually, in chronological order, with the title, writer, director, producer, and date when the information is available. The location note for each episode indicates which volume the script is in.

    Logbooks [series]:

    (1 folder, 1974-1985) The logbook is of “Rerun Records,” recording when shows that Hal Cooper worked on were rerun. The records are arranged alphabetically by show. For each show there is a page for each year, listing all the episodes he was involved with. There are check marks for each time it was rerun and sometimes the dates they aired and how much he was paid. There are many pages for I Dream of Jeannie and Maude , as well as various other shows that he worked on from 1962 to 1985. The records are for when the shows were rerun between 1974 and 1985.
