Series 2: Correspondence, 1950-2001
Collection Description & Creator Information
The Richard Schechner/TDR Collection contains material related to the individual, Richard Schechner, as well as items pertaining to the academic theater journal The Drama Review. The majority of the information on TDR derives from Schechner's years as editor (1962-1969, 1986- ) and includes correspondence, galley proofs, edited articles, publishing contracts, and photographs. Because of the need to maintain original order within this collection, material on TDR was not isolated from Schechner's personal and professional papers, so the divisions in the above arrangement are somewhat porous. One of the drawbacks to TDR material is the lack of information from the pre- and post-Schechner years. Researchers interested in those particular years are encouraged to examine the correspondence (Series 2, Subseries 2 and 3, in particular) to obtain more information.
Unless otherwise noted, folders are arranged alphabetically and chronologically (earliest to latest). Researchers should be aware that although a particular person, organization, or subject may have its own folder, it is highly recommended that the general correspondence folders in Series 2 be checked as well. Furthermore, conferences, performance studios, and publishing companies may contain material relating to individuals named elsewhere.
This series is arranged into five subseries: TDR Correspondence by Issue, TDR General Correspondence, General Correspondence, Personal Correspondence, and Restricted Material.
