Description
Very small collection consisting of a photograph of players and typed script for the performance "Fads, Frivols and Cheers for Our Forty Hectic Years," recognizing the fortieth anniversary of the California Library Association convention, held in Sacramento, California, in June 1935.
Background
The California Library Association was founded in 1895. 450 delegates from around the state and under the leadership of State Librarian Mabel Gillis, met in Sacramento in early June 1935 for the group's fortieth anniversary to discuss the establishment of an organizational code of ethics. Venues for meeting were the Hotel Senator, Hotel Sacramento and the Masonic Temple. "Fads, Frivols and Cheers for Our Forty Hectic Years" was performed on the evening of June 5 at Hotel Senator during a banquet for delegates. The epic's writer and director was Miss Helen M. Dobson, who worked as a book repairer at the California State Library. The five players, their names listed on the back of a photograph, were Roy Chastain, William Rogers, Curtis Hoffman, Dave Bicker and Jesse Moering.
