Scope and arrangement
The Ronald Field papers (1954-1988) contain correspondence, photographs, programs, reviews and scripts relating to his various projects and performances. These materials examine Field's award-winning career and the development processes of his dance productions. Included in the correspondence are brief letters from the American theatrical producer Harold Smith about Ashmedai, and from International Creative Management, a talent and literary agency, regarding Cabaret. There are also a large number of telegrams from family members and friends sent for the opening of Nowhere To Go But Up. The photographs are mainly of performances, but there are several headshots and a few personal photos. In the biographical information, there is a transcription of a 1978, in-depth interview conducted with Field about his career.
The collection is arranged alphabetically by subject.
