Abstract:

Papers of a leading producer and director of Broadway dramas consisting of correspondence, production and publicity materials, financial and legal records, clippings, a few scripts and directors' prompt books, and miscellaneous production materials. Coverage is most complete for "The Deputy" (1964) and "Inherit the Wind" (1955), while "The Corn is Green" (1943), "Grand Hotel" (1930), "The Male Animal" (1940), and plays done in association with Lillian Hellman are documented primarily by microfilmed pressbooks.

The correspondence documents Shumlin's involvement in organizations such as the Council of the Living Theatre and the League of New York Theatres; his motion picture work for Warner Brothers during World War II; his financial support of numerous theatrical and social action organizations; and his relationship with British and American actors, playwrights, and authors, producers and directors, critics, composers, and others.
