New Guide for the Merriman Scrapbook Collection

The Curtis Theatre Collection recently published a new collection guide to our Merriman Scrapbook Collection. Oliver P. Merriman was an avid follower of Pittsburgh theatre. He built a large scrapbook collection that documents the history of the performing arts in Pittsburgh from the 1870s through the 1930s. It is organized into several broad categories and contains thousands of theatre programs, clippings, photographs, and other ephemera.

If you have any questions about this collection, please contact our Theatre Arts subject specialist/Liaison Librarian, William Daw.
