Abstract:

Collection consists of manuscripts, correspondence, professional material, photographs, printed material, and other items.

Manuscripts in the collection include scripts for plays, films, and television programs in which Alexander has appeared and a number of these bear her annotations. Plays include The Great White Hope and Goodbye Fidel, both by Howard Sackler; Ghosts, by Henrik Ibsen; Playing for Time, by Arthur Miller; The Sisters Rosensweig, by Wendy Wasserstein; Rose and Walsh, by Neil Simon; and others. Screenplays and teleplays include Glory, by Kevin Jarre, Edward Zwick and Marshall Herskovitz, The Great White Hope, by Howard Sackler; All the President's Men, by William Goldman; Kramer vs. Kramer, by Robert Benton; and others.

Correspondence in the collection includes items relating to her acting career as well as several letters regarding her tenure as head of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), including letters from Jane Fonda, Sally Kellerman, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Claiborne Pell, Edward Kennedy, Ed Asner, James Earl Jones, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr., Robert Redford, Charlton Heston, Janet Reno, Al Gore, Sandra Day O'Connor, Robert Byrd, Daniel Patrick Moynihan, Jesse Helms, and Kay Bailey Hutchison. The bulk of the correspondence (1990-2000), consists of letters regarding NEA matters.

Professional material in this collection primarily consists of files relating to the NEA's work to further awareness of the arts and work with the government to fund artistic endeavors. The NEA's budget was targeted for elimination by Congressional Republicans during this period, using the pretext that NEA funds were supporting obscenity; this controversy is reflected in Alexander's papers. Present are numerous letters, minutes of meetings, itineraries, clippings, endowment statements, congressional records from legislative sessions, transcripts of speeches, court records, and various memos, all dating from the 1990s. Most of these documents are photocopies. The collection contains several dozen photos from Alexander's career and personal life. Printed material in the collection includes film and play posters, reviews, and programs for different productions. Other items in the collection include several award certificates presented to Alexander, artists' renderings of the actress, and several audio recordings of interviews and talks.
