The Channing Pollock Collection contains the playwright's published works,
manuscripts, and personal correspondence with celebrities of his day;
as well as clippings, photographs, programs, broadsides, and sheet music
representing different phases of the theatrical and entertainment world.
The collection's strengths are Shakespearean drama and criticism as well
as the English and American theater of the 19th century. It also has
extensive clippings files which give a historical sketch of black performers
on the American stage, in movies and on television.
