Descriptive Summary

Title: Jack Gelber Papers
Dates: 1938-2002 (Bulk 1957-1999)
Abstract: The Jack Gelber Papers reflect their creator's career as a writer, director and teacher of American theatre. Much of the collection is composed of Gelber's correspondence and writing, particularly his plays. The collection also holds a smaller amount of records dedicated to a number of the theatre productions and workshops he directed which included performances of his own works. However there are few documents concerning his career as an instructor. As a whole the collection contains substantial quantities of correspondence, typescript drafts, handwritten notes, printed advertisements, and clippings along with a few journal entries, audiotapes, and videocassettes.
Quantity: 31.0 linear feet (50 boxes)
