Edward Charles Mabie Papers
The papers of Edward C. Mabie (Department of Theatre Arts chair, 1920-1950) include newspaper clippings, nine boxes of correspondence (arranged alphabetically), magazines, notebooks, speeches, memorabilia, and radio programs. Much of the history of the growth of the University Theatre, both physically and in curriculum is contained in these materials. Mabie's notes show the development of the Department of Speech, and Iowa school system changes as well. Also presented are Works Progress Administration (WPA) dealings, high school debates, Dartmouth College notes, positions at Illinois and Kentucky, and his hobbies of gardening and raising poultry.
