Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
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.
John Pauley was a professor in the Speech Department and the Theatre Arts Department from 1952 through 1979. He wrote a history of the Theatre Arts Department from 1914-1982.
