Richard Schechner Papers and The Drama Review Collection

Related Topics

The Richard Schechner/TDR Collection contains material related to the individual,
Richard Schechner, as well as items pertaining to the academic theater journal
The Drama Review. The majority of the
information on TDR derives from Schechner's years as editor (1962-1969, 1986- )
and includes correspondence, galley proofs, edited articles, publishing
contracts, and photographs. Because of the need to maintain original order
within this collection, material on TDR was not isolated from Schechner's
personal and professional papers, so the divisions in the above arrangement are
somewhat porous. One of the drawbacks to TDR material is the lack of information
from the pre- and post-Schechner years. Researchers interested in those
particular years are encouraged to examine the correspondence (Series 2,
Subseries 2 and 3, in particular) to obtain more information.Unless otherwise noted, folders are arranged alphabetically and chronologically
(earliest to latest). Researchers should be aware that although a particular
person, organization, or subject may have its own folder, it is highly
recommended that the general correspondence folders in Series 2 be checked as
well. Furthermore, conferences, performance studios, and publishing companies
may contain material relating to individuals named elsewhere.
