This course will look at the rich collection of ephemera in the Harvard Theatre Collection. Advertising was in many ways the lifeblood of the entertainment industry and we will explore the varied ways that actors, artists, and impresarios attempted to entice audiences with creative playbills, photography, posters and other forms of printed ephemera.
Instructors: Matthew Wittmann, Curator of the Harvard Theatre Collection and Dale Stinchchom, Assistant Curator of the Harvard Theatre Collection
