Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection contains nine scrapbook journals kept by Alma Rau Haebel (1896-1979) documenting her visits to the theater over more than six decades, beginning as a girl in New York City in 1908 and later in Los Angeles, California (1941-1969). Entries chiefly consist of pasted playbills and program/newspaper clippings of performance and actor photographs along with brief handwritten reviews of the performances.
Alma Rau Haebel (1896-1979) was born in New Jersey to parents Seymour and Emma Rau and later lived in New York City. She married Otto Haebel in December 1941 and they moved to Los Angeles, California, in the mid 1940s.
