Abstract:

The collection consists mainly of materials relating to David Belasco and his family collected by Belasco's grand niece Marjorie Himmelstern. There are also materials relating to the Bender family, who were maternal relations of Ms. Himmelstern. Included are 1907 and 1911 programs from the New Alcazar Theatre; newspaper clippings about David Belasco and the New Alcazar Theatre; a program from a 1921 dinner honoring David Belasco given by the Society of Arts and Sciences at the Biltmore Hotel in New York City, and two volumes of issues of the New Alcazar Messenger (a weekly publication of the New Alcazar Theatre) from 1907 through 1910. Photographs in the collection include: a photograph of Reyna Belasco (1892); a seemingly earlier, undated photograph of Humphrey and Reyna Belasco; photographs of Noah Bender, the donor's maternal grandfather (1926); David Belasco's publicity stills; and a photograph from a Bender family photo album of a woman cooking on a stove outside, apparently as a result of the 1906 San Francisco earthquake (labeled "Mrs. Hahn, 1906"). Oversize items consist of the following: pages from a David Belasco scrapbook, which include a series of 12 photographs (1909) of Belasco (apparently in his home) taken by the Byron Company, the great New York photography studio that specialized in photographing Broadway theatrical productions; a photograph of David Belasco's daughter Reina; a photograph of David Belasco's daughter Augusta; a photograph of Humphrey and David Belasco; a caricature of the New Alcazar Theatre staff; and newspaper clippings.
