History

Organizational History:

Collection Scope and Content Note

This collection includes scrapbooks documenting the academic years of the Theatre Department, 1939/1940-1965/1966 and 1970/1971-1972. Materials include production programs, music, photographs, newspaper clippings, and some correspondence.

Materials were removed from rotting, plastic binders, duplicates were sorted out, and miscellaneous materials removed. Remaining materials were filed into acid-free folders. Due to the overall high acidic content of the materials, nothing was photocopied.

Researchers should also check CMU. Theatre Department photographs, which are part of the CMU. Photographs Collection.
