    Scope and Contents

    The Klauber Family Scrapbook Collection consists of three scrapbooks containing programs for various performance arts events from 1896 to 1932. Various performing arts events include theater shows, recitals, operas, Califa, a historical California pageant, and other miscellaneous productions the Klauber family attended. Most of the theaters were located in San Diego, but the Klauber family also attended productions in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York. Materials also include newspaper clippings, magazine clippings, flyers, and photographs of theater and production performers. Notable theaters include the San Francisco Orpheum, Golden Gate Hall, the Grand Opera House, Columbia Theatre, the San Diego Spreckels Theatre, the Fisher Opera House, the Amphion, the Garrick Thatre, U.S. Grant Auditorium, Empress Theatre, Loring Theater, Cabrillo Theatre, and the Strand Theater. Various pages in each scrapbook are annotated with hand written notes, mostly indicating the names of individuals the scrapbook author attended the production with.
    Notably, this collection includes a flyer and program for a lecture given by Hellen Keller along with Anne Sulivan, Keller's teacher and life long companion. While no date is given on the flyer, records indicate this lecture probably occured between 1919 and 1924 during her first major U.S. tour.
