First, please allow me to correct your spelling of my first name. It is Stace, not "Stacey". Stace was my paturnal grandmother's maiden name.
Other than minor personality irritants that my father occasionally mentioned, I not aware of any serious tensions between the Benny writers of his era.
After my father left the Benny show in about 1956 or 7 he stayed retired for a few years and then in the early 60s did some writing for the Joey Bishop sitcom, a bit for Bob Newhart (who started as a writer himself) and Jackie Gleason. These stints ended about 1966 and he enjoyed himself until his 1969 death.
Regards, Stace Tackaberry
