Scope and arrangement
The Claudia & Ralph Morgan Papers contain the certificates, contracts, correspondence, scripts, telegrams and miscellaneous material relating to the careers on stage, in motion pictures and with professional organizations (e.g. Screen Actors Guild) for this father and daughter collection. Of special interest in the collection is Claudia Morgan's script for The Man Who Came to Dinner, the two poems written by Ralph to his daughter, the numerous letters from Grace Arnold to Ralph Morgan and the references to Ralph Morgan's connection to the Screen Actors Guild.
Even though Frank Morgan is the uncle and brother of Claudia and Ralph Morgan, respectively, there are only a few items that refer to Frank Morgan in the collection. Also, there are no film or stage materials for Ralph Morgan, nor is there material from the Adventures of the Thin Man for Claudia Morgan.
