Scope and arrangement
Collection consists of correspondence, clippings, awards, programs and photographs that span Goldberg's career. The correspondence is mostly incoming, on both personal and professional matters, primarily letters of thanks, bulk dates, 1950-1956. Correspondents include Oscar and Dorothy Hammerstein, Leland Hayward and Louis R. Lurie. Programs are for the Plantation Revue, a vaudeville act, which he managed in 1923 and photographs include a shot of Goldberg with Moscow stagehands in 1926.
