Scope and arrangement
The William H. Glenn and Walter Jenkins Scrapbook dates from 1922 to 1949 and 1962 and forms part of the Helen Armstead-Johnson Theater Collection. Most of the items are pasted into the scrapbook and adequately document the performances and tours of the pair. The scrapbook's contents include reviews and advertisements for their comedy routines, "Working For the Railway" and "The Broom Dance" from the following newspapers: New York Post, Boston Travelor, K-C Times, Vaudeville News and Star, Variety, London Coliseum, and Big Time Vaudeville. The scrapbook also contains notes, flyers, photographs, telegrams, greeting cards, and carbons of their pay stubs. Letters from their manager, Thomas J. Fitzpatrick, an agent at the Rialto Vaudeville Representative Inc., are also pasted into the album. There is no discernible arrangement to the scrapbook except that early dates are usually on the recto page while later dates are on the verso page. There are photographs of Glenn and Jenkins in the Photographs and Prints Division.
