Description
The Asian American Theater Company Archives consists of eleven series distributed among 56 archival boxes that occupy approximately 25 linear feet of space. The archival materials include administrative/personnel records, grant applications, production files, correspondence, flyers, audio and videotapes, photographs, and a few theater artifacts. The AATC Archives cover the period between 1973-1997. Series and folder titles within them are generally arranged in alphabetic order. Folders with the same subject are usually arranged alphabetically or chronologically.
Background
The Asian American Theater Company (AATC) is one of the only three Asian American theaters in the United States. Founded in 1973 by the Chinese American writer and playwright Frank Chin and others, it is a professionally-oriented theater dedicated to producing plays that are by and about Asian Americans, and is the oldest, full-season production, ethnic theater in northern California. Its high-quality productions promote inter-ethnic understanding and provide positive role models for the Asian American community as well as the community-at- large.
Extent
45 Hollinger boxes, 3 Paige boxes, and 10 portfolio/print boxes.
