Abstract:

Comprise correspondence, manuscripts, notes, scrapbooks, clippings, receipts, music scores, and a collection of autographs that reflect Smith's theater career and his interest in book and manuscript collecting primarily from 1890 to 1930. Smith collaborated on operas and operettas with Reginald DeKoven, Victor Herbert, Irving Berlin, Ivan Caryl, Jerome Kern, and John Philip Sousa, among others. His correspondence with his collaborators, actors, actresses, and publishers centers around his theater projects and book and manuscript collecting. Smith's own correspondence is interfiled with autograph letters he collected by well-known writers and actors such as Joanna Baillie, Dion Boucicault, George Coleman, Robert William Elliston, David Garrick, Charles John Kean, and Mitchell Kennerley. Writings by Smith include over fifty scenarios, synopses, and musical plays, as well as fictional pieces, articles about collecting books and manuscripts, and notes and drafts for A Sentimental Library (1914), Smith's catalog of his own library. Scrapbooks contain clippings and bibliographic information about a number of authors, including Lord Byron, Dickens, Shakespeare, and Thackeray.
