12Title:  Charles Zuber papers on the history of theater in Cincinnati, circa 1937   
 Creator:  Zuber, Charles, 1872-1938 
 Notes:  This collection includes a heavily annotated typescript draft of his articles on the history of theater in Cincinnati; notes from his research on the topic; and a more polished typescript, possibly a finished version designed to become a complete history. The annotated typescript drafts of the articles are ordered chronologically by the date in history that they concern, from a brief history pre-1820 to a more comprehensive history of the years between 1820 and 1854. The notes are his personal, handwritten and typewritten notes concerning theater in Cincinnati between 1830 and 1854. Finally, the more polished typescript provides a cleaner view of his history. It is possible to see Zuber's focus on subjects ranging from plays and performances, specific theaters, and actors (including Edwin Forrest) to the effects of theater on war to the involvement of African-American and women actors. It is unclear if this circa 1937 work is actually complete (Zuber died in 1938) or that it was ever published. There are references made in the Cincinnati Inquirer in 1948 to Zuber's "history of early Cincinnati theater events," but there are also indications that a copy of Zuber's writing (probably identical to this one) was sold to the Historical and Philosophical Society of Ohio and may have been consulted for the 1948 reference.

20Title:  Colonel T. Allston Brown history of the American stage notebooks, circa 1905   
 Creator:  Brown, T. Allston (Thomas Allston), 1836-1918 
 Notes:  Processing Information: These volumes were previously classed as 812H B814.3 Volumes 1-5. This collection includes five bound volumes containing handwritten notes and newspaper clippings concerning the history of the American stage. The volumes are organized by geographic location, the first is focused on Boston, the second on Philadelphia, the third on New York City, the fourth on Ohio, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Missouri, greater Pennsylvania, New Jersey, greater New York, and Rhode Island, and the fifth and final volume is focused on Brooklyn. These volumes contain information on actors, theatres, theatre companies, circuses, and a variety of shows from 1749 all the way to 1905, just one year before Colonel T. Allston Brown presented the volumes to the Green Room Club. In addition to documenting the theater, the notebooks also contain information on everything from circuses to early African-American theater to a burlesque Ethiopian opera. It is possible that Brown collected these newspaper clippings while researching his works on the New York and American stage.
