Theatre Program Collection
Scope and Contents
The majority of the programs are for performances dated from 1945 to the present in New York, London, Washington D.C., and St. Louis.
Holdings: 4000 est.
Several donors have added to the nucleus collection that was part of the Language/Literature Library, an MU Libraries departmental library until it became part of the expanded Reference Division in 1989. At that time the playbills were transferred to Special Collections. Donors since have been Mary Lago, Margaret Howell, Stephen M. Archer, Sharon Bittner, Elva and Ralph Harmon, Dorothy Bernstein, Joseph Geist, Kenneth Leish, and Agnes Garino.
The programs are being processed. Please contact Special Collections for more details. Theater programs must be used in Special Collection’s reading room during service hours or by appointment.
