Magicos Jamboree (1934), dates not examined
Collection Description & Creator Information
The collection consists of three scrapbooks (numbered 267, 268, 269) of publicity photographs--compiled by C. A. George Newmann and collected by Jones (Princeton Class of 1911)--of some 19th- but mainly 20th-century mentalists, magicians, ventriloquists, and illusionists. A typed commentary accompanies most of the photographs, and many of them are inscribed to Newmann. Included are photographs of well-known actors and actresses who also excelled at magic, such as Anna May Wong, Veronica Lake, Bela Lugosi, and Edmund Lowe.
- Custodial History:
The collection was included in a larger gift by Carl Waring Jones to the Rare Books Division of the Library. The numbering of the scrapbooks is inherited from the sequencing of the former Theatre Collection scrapbooks.
