Collection Overview

Collection Description & Creator Information

Description:

The collection consists of miscellaneous anonymous playscripts, arranged alphabetically by title, that are largely undated but appear to range from the late 19th century to the mid-20th century (1942). Most are typed or mimeographed and bound, though a few are handwritten in composition books. The majority are stamped with the name of a theatrical agency (about 80% from "Howard & Doyle Theatrical Agents, Chicago"). Most scripts are American in origin; a very small number appear to be British or European. Sample titles include "The Cotton King," "A Legal Wreck," "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde," and "Erma the Elf."
