Abstract:

The papers contain materials related to Robert Whitehead's life and career. The Production Files series chiefly consists of scripts and business papers related to plays Whitehead produced and directed. It also includes programs, photographs, costume and set renderings, correspondence with playwrights, actors, and investors, limited partnership agreements, and actor and production contracts. Correspondence in the collection includes business and personal letters sent and received by Whitehead. Notable correspondents include Brooks Atkinson, Harold Clurman, William Inge, Harold Prince, and Christopher Plummer. The Business Papers series contains mostly letters and contracts related to theatrical education projects, theater companies with which Whitehead was associated, and awards or memorial projects. A significant portion of the materials are related to Whitehead's tenure as head of the Lincoln Center Repertory Theater. The Writings series contains articles, speeches, and book materials written by and about Whitehead. Reviews, articles, fliers, programs and promotional materials pertaining to Whitehead's productions are arranged by title in the Publicity Files series. Photographs in the collection are mostly images of Whitehead alone or with friends and family members. The remaining materials consist of piano-vocal scores or parts for Midgie Purvis and The Conquering Hero, scripts sent to Whitehead for his consideration that were never produced, memorabilia and writings related to Zoe Caldwell, awards, posters, and costume renderings from several of his productions.
