Scope and arrangement
The Florida Friebus Papers consist of photocopied newspaper clippings, correspondence, contracts, scripts, photographs, playbills, and various personal papers. Much of the collection consists of reviews of productions in which Friebus appeared or was involved, personal essays and other autobiographical information, and contracts and correspondence relating to various productions. The majority of the photographs in the collection derive from productions in which Friebus appeared or was involved. Interestingly, Friebus' personal correspondence was almost invariably with people she knew in a professional capacity as well, indicating a great overlap in her personal and professional lives.
The Florida Friebus papers are arranged in two series:
- 1926-19881 box
This series contains letters and other correspondence to and from friends and colleagues; autobiographical sketches and resumes; essays and other writings; and clips, pamphlets, and other ephemera dealing with Friebus' social and professional life.
- 1926-19883 boxes
The series contains clips, contracts, photographs, playbills, telegrams, and other materials detailing and highlighting Friebus' long involvement in theater, television and radio.
