Scope and arrangement
The Annie Hart papers and scrapbooks are arranged in four series:
This series consists of personal photographs and ephemera of Annie Hart's personal life. Ephemera includes membership cards, wedding invitations, a wallet (photos of parents were removed, placed in acid free envelope and included in the personal photograph folder) and pamphlets.
This series consist of incoming and outgoing correspondence primarily from business and personal friends. Of special note is correspondence from Joe Laurie, Jr.
This series consists of clippings, press releases, publicity materials and the side for the part of the landlady (Ms. Hart's part) in SHOWBOAT. Most of the materials relate to SHOW BOAT or members of the SHOW BOAT cast.
This series consists of two scrapbooks. The first is a clipping scrapbook from the 1930s concerning Annie Hart's career, the second contains primarily photographs of Howard and Marion Marsh, their home in Rumson New Jersey and Howard Marsh's nightclub in West Orange, The Mayfair Club.
