Scope and arrangement
The Arden-Peerless Papers consist of incoming letters, a few miscellaneous personal papers, a scrapbook of clippings of reviews, and unidentified cabinet photographs.
The Arden-Peerless papers are arranged in three series:
Papers consist of correspondence: incoming letters [1893-1899 and n.d.] to Wallace Arden and incoming letters [1898-1910] to Katie Peerless, a United States immigration card  for Wallace Arden, a stage date book , a handwritten fragment from an unidentified script, and bills and receipts from a 1901 production of A Trip to Chinatown. The letters to Wallace Arden concern his work on various productions including letters of thanks for his managerial skills and of congratulations for his performances. The three letters to Katie Peerless concern her employment as an actress and later travels.
This series consists of a photocopy of a scrapbook [1886-1898] containing clippings of reviews of various productions which Arden managed or in which Arden and/or Peerless appeared, as well as photocopies of loose clippings [1890-1894 and n.d.] that were stored inside the scrapbook.
This series contains cabinet photographs of unidentified actors and actresses and of scenes from an unidentified play in which Wallace Arden and Katie Peerless appeared together. It also has one photograph of Katie Peerless in a peasant costume that is attached to a piece of cracked glass and was formerly in a blue plush horseshoe shaped frame.
