  • Scrapbooks kept by Daniel Blum, theatrical producer and publisher of Theatre World (1944-1965), Screen World (1950-1965), and Opera World (1952-1954). These microfilmed scrapbooks contain playbills, reviews, clippings, and obituaries of famous actors, actresses, and film and theater personalities. A small group of the scrapbooks concerns athletes, and another group contains "Autograms," stars' answers to a few short questions posed by Blum. Most of the theatrical performances documented were for legitimate theater performances in New York City, though other cities are represented as are some revues and vaudeville productions.
