 Creator:  Billington, Michael, 1939- | Horace Howard Furness Memorial Fund | Horace Howard Furness Memorial Library (University of Pennsylvania) 
 Notes:  Includes index. What makes a great play? Does the definition change with time and circumstance? Are certain common factors visible down the ages? In revising the canon The 101 Greatest Plays is bound to stimulate passionate argument, but first and foremost it is a celebration of the art of the dramatist. It is the product of a lifetime spent watching and reading, a record of the adventures of a soul amongst masterpieces.

17Title:  Hubert H. Harrison papers, 1893-1927   
 Creator:  Harrison, Hubert H. 
 Notes:  The collection is composed of the personal papers--correspondence, manuscripts, documents, newspaper clippings, diaries, scrapbooks, memorabilia, photographs and books--of Hubert H. Harrison, an early 20th century African American activist, orator, writer, intellectual, and editor. The papers range from his early years in the United States to his death in 1927. The bulk of the collection is printed material, mostly clippings and books. There is a substantial correspondence series which includes letters by many prominent writers and individuals such as John E. Bruce, Clarence Darrow, W.E.B. DuBois, Claude Mc Kay, H. L. Mencken, Eugene O'Neill, William Pickens, Adam Clayton Powell, Sr., A. Philip Randolph, Andy Razafkeriefo (Razaf), Joel A. Rogers, T. Lothrop Stoddard, William Monroe Trotter, Walter White, Carter G. Woodson, and Monroe N. Work. Of particular note is the extensive collection of writings, both original manuscripts as well as clippings from newspapers and magazines by Hubert H. Harrison. In addition, there are numerous scrapbooks compiled by Harrison on a wealth of topics, as well as his diaries. Many unique and important photographs of Harrison and his family, friends, and associates are contained in the collection along with a notable collection of books, evincing the breath and depth of Harrison's reading, as well as his interest in book collecting. Harrison's active career as a lecturer and speaker is demonstrated by the numerous broadsides and pamphlets. See also the following publications: "A Hubert H. Harrison Reader". Edited by Jeffrey B. Perry. CT: Wesleyan University Press, 2001. "Hubert Harrison: The father of Harlem Radicalism, 1883-1918". forthcoming, Columbia University Press, 2008.

18Title:  Records of the DuPont Theatre, 1919-2001 (bulk, 1975-1995)   
 Creator:  DuPont Hospitality (A unit of E.I. du Pont de Nemours & Company) | Play House Company (Wilmington, Del.) 
 Notes:  The records of the DuPont Theatre consist primarily of public relations and advertising materials related to the theater's operation between 1919 and 2001. As such, they present a sequence of changing tastes in popular entertainment in a medium-sized American city. The administrative files include selected blueprints, a business plan, 75th anniversary materials, and a chronological listing of plays performed from 1913 to 2001. The publicity files (1876-1992) include publicity about the theater and reviews and articles about plays presented there. Press clippings (1959-1997), press releases (1987-1991), and press materials (1988-1994) cover both the theater and the productions staged there. Press kits (1987-1998) are materials issued by the production companies and distributed to promote presentations at the theater. They contain press releases, photos, reviews and other information about the plays, which the theater was to distribute to advertise the shows in the local media. The records of plays (1981-1999) are more comprehensive files on various productions, including press kits, advertising, brochures featuring the play's poster art, biographical sheets on the performers and writers, photos, including standard head shots and stage scenes, and copies of newspaper advertisements and reviews. The "Playbill" theater programs (1919-1999, incomplete) were published by the touring companies as variations on those issued in connection with the original Broadway productions. They contain the outline of acts, scenes and musical numbers, the cast of players, and background information on the show and members of the company. In addition to this material supplied by the company, about half the booklet was given over to local advertising and news items to cover printing costs, in this case specific to the Wilmington area. These include ads for new suburban subdivisions in the 1950s and 1960s. There are some Playbills for performances in other venues. Flyers and advertisements date from 1949-1992. The artifacts were part of lobby displays that highlighted the history of the Theater in the 1980s and 1990s, and include old keys to actors' dressing rooms. Signed playbills and photographs date from 1953-1997, with the bulk from 1994-1997. Perfomers for whom photos and publicity sheets are available are listed below. A full list of plays and other productions may be found in the finding aid.
