Agnes Nixon, show creator, appeared Nov. 12 on All My Children

How many watchers realized the frail woman seen yesterday was Agnes Nixon who after assisting Irna Phillips some 50 years ago created both All My Children and One Life to Live. Who was Irna Phillips? She gave birth to a host of radio soap operas 70-plus years ago, one of which - The Guiding Light - is still aired today on television. Agnes' cameo appearance was a fitting tribute to AMC's longevity.
