Scope and arrangement
The collection contains theatrical scripts dating from 1927 to 1967, some for plays in which Ben-Ami performed. Also included are television scripts, play synopses, clippings, and an essay. Jacob Ben-Ami's varied cultural influences are represented here, with many scripts in English translation from languages including Yiddish, Russian, and French, while others remain in their original language.
Collection is arranged alphabetically by script author.
