Abstract:

The Paul Cranefield Papers, 1824-2002 (bulk 1951-2002), document medical doctor and theater enthusiast Paul Cranefield's interest and contribution to New York City's theatrical world, and in particular the Off-Off Broadway movement.

The collection consists of administrative files created by the La Mama Experimental Theatre Club and the Circle Repertory Theatre, in which Cranefield served as a board member for several years. They include correspondence, meeting minutes, notes and agendas, legal and financial records, grant applications, leaflets and brochures, production inventories, and Cranefield's writings on subjects related to theater and collecting. There are also scripts, photographs, clippings, and a considerable number of programs and posters from productions created by La Mama and Circle Repertory Theatre, as well as from productions of the 1800s, the bulk years of this collection span from 1951-2002, there are several items collected by Cranefield that date from as early as 1824. They are mainly posters and programs of productions from the 1800s, as well as an original sketch of the mid-nineteenth-century actress Anna Cora Mowatt, which Cranefield obtained together with the first edition of Mowatt's Autobiography of an Actress, or Eight Years on the Stage, 1854. A large part of this collection consists of scripts, several of them annotated or inscribed by the authors. These inscriptions and attached correspondence indicate his support on several of the works represented here. In particular, Paul Foster's The Madonna in the Orchard and Lanford Wilson's The Rimers of Eldritch include substantial research materials or comments by Cranefield. This collection does not contain materials related to Paul Cranefield's career as a doctor, with a few exceptions where the subjects of theater and medicine overlap.
