Subseries 7A, Clark Gesner Papers and Collection on Triangle Club, 1890-2002
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Triangle Club Records document the performances and business activities of one of the oldest college theatre groups in the country, but also to examine an aspect of student life as it relates to politics, social customs, and student mores. In its one-hundred-plus-year history, Triangle has spoofed perennial Princeton topics such as classroom etiquette, examinations, dating, living arrangements, and dining, as well as broader topics such as women's rights, Vietnam, Watergate, and academic trends.
Materials in Subseries 7A, Clark Gesner Papers and Collection on Triangle Club are very loosely arranged in the following order: Production Files and Designs, Photographs, Newsletter Materials, Gesner's Diaries, Administrative Material, Alumni Files and Lists, Exhibits and Similar, Published Scores, and Audiovisual Recordings.
- Archival Appraisal Information:
Materials separated during the processing of Series 8: Post-1996 Additions, 1890-2013 include recordings, printed matter and other items that were duplicates of materials already present in this or other Mudd Manuscript Library collections; a card index of Triangle Club productions in alphabetical order; and the majority of the Triangle Club Collection of Musical Recordings, which consisted of approximately 300 cassette tape duplications of musical theater albums and an accompanying card catalog.
These papers were processed with the support of Cindy Horowitz Wenig Class of 1988 in honor of Norman and Judy Horowitz.
