Abstract:

The Two Orphans Collection is chiefly comprised of programs and photographs. The twelve photographs, in carte-de-visite format, are of the original cast of the first United States production of the play at the Union Square Theatre in 1874. Among them are photos of McKee Rankin, Kitty Blanchard, and Kate Claxton, famous actors of that epoch. There are fifty-nine programs from different productions in several United States theatres. Notable among the programs are those for the first production at the Union Square Theatre, in 1874, and the tragic production of the play at the Brooklyn Theatre, in 1876, where nearly 300 people lost their lives in a fire, including two of the actors. The scrapbook contains twelve large photographs of different scenes of the production of the play at the New Amsterdam Theatre, New York City, in 1904.
