Scope and arrangement
The Dorothy Lockhart papers are composed almost entirely of correspondence dealing with her work at the Annie Russell Theater. The correspondence, 1922-1957, is primarily from prominent theater and literary people, most of whom had been asked to lecture at the college. Among prominent correspondents in the collection are: producer and director Norman Bel Geddes, Annie Russell, Elmer Davis, Barret Clark and Otis Skinner.
Also in the collection is much correspondence with Norman Bel Geddes about a production of Hamlet he directed, 1931-1932, and miscellaneous accounts relating to the construction of the Annie Russell Theater.
