Abstract:

The Lorenzo Tucker papers reflect portions of Tucker's screen and stage career and also discuss his service during World War II and his varied occupations in the 1960's-1980's. There is no original material from his early acting career with Oscar Micheaux, but there are several scrapbooks representing his theatrical performances, including the touring production (British Isles) of the American Negro Theatre's "Anna Lucasta," and his role as road manager in the 1950's for "Springtime for Henry" and an all-black production of "Harvey" starring Dooley Wilson. Another scrapbook features Tucker's World War II experience as a trainee in MacDill Field, Florida and entertainment specialist via programs, clippings and other printed material.

The collection also documents Tucker's efforts to share his knowledge about black film and theater, and correspondence from the 1970's and 1980's references his early acting career. There is a folder of letters from an actor friend, Jay Flash Riley, 1979-1980, and a limited number of letters regarding his work as a photographer. The recognition in the 1970's-1980's for his pioneering work as an actor is documented in awards and appreciations presented to him by such organizations as the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame and L.A.-D.C. Connection, Inc.

The collection includes programs and playbills from films and theatrical presentations in which Tucker acted, was the master of ceremonies or the official photographer, 1931-1979. There are also scripts, several authored by Tucker. Included are scripts for plays in which he performed such as "Harvey" and "Ol' Man Satan," and a number of radio dramatizations and television programs.
