This is a very rich history of the multiple departments relating to Speech, Drama, Theatre, Communication and more, from the
initial offering of one course in Speech/Drama in 1914, and the first production on December 3, 1914 of “Her Own Way,” by
Clyde Fitch, at Pettengill’s Minor Theatre. The narrator, and primary creator of the collection of performance photographs
and playbills, is Dr. John Pauley. The collection complements his “Story of Humboldt State University Theatre Arts Department”
covering the years 1914-1979.
