Introduction
The collection is part of the larger Charles E. Frohman Collection and was donated by Mr. Frohman in 1967.

Biographical Sketch
Charles F. Frohman (1860 – 1915) and his brothers, Daniel (1851 – 1940) and Gustave (1854 – 1930), were born in Sandusky, Ohio. From boyhood, Charles had loved the theatre.  He moved to New York City in the early 1870s and worked for the New York Tribune and the Daily Graphic. At night, he sold tickets at Brooklyn’s Hooley Theatre.  He founded the Empire Theatre Stock Company in 1892.  The following year, Charles produced his first Broadway play – Clyde Fitch’s “Masked Ball.” With his brother Daniel, Charles established a system of road companies that toured the nation while the show played in New York City. At the height of his career, Frohman controlled six theatres in New York, more than two hundred throughout the U. S., and five in London. He personally managed the careers of 28 leading stars, including John Drew, Maude Adams, and Ethel Barrymore.  He is credited with overseeing the transition of Broadway from a stock system to a star system.  He frequently selected his stars and then searched for plays that showcased their talents.  In 1896, Frohman, along with five partners, he established systemized booking networks across the U. S., creating a monopoly that controlled contracts and bookings for nearly two decades.  Over the course of his career, he paid out more the $35 million in salaries to some 10,000 people on his payroll. Among his most famous successes was James M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan” with Maude Adams.  Charles Frohman died in 1915; he was aboard the RMS Lusitania when it was sunk by a German submarine.  

Daniel Frohman became producer and manager of the Lyceum Theatre and its stock company in 1887. He managed the careers of such actors as E. H. Sothern,. Henry Miller, and William Faversham. Along with his brothers Charles and Gustave, Daniel developed a partnership with Adolf Zukor to produce motion pictures.  In 1913, the Famous Players Production Company produced “Prisoner of Zenda,” the first of its 74 films.  Following Charles’ death, Daniel and Gustave managed the Frohman Amusement Corporation, a company established to produce motion pictures from the theatrical plays for which the brothers held the rights. Following Gustave’s death in 1930, Daniel continued producing plays and managing his theatres until he died in 1940.

Gustave Frohman worked in partnership with his brother Charles as an early booking agent and theatrical producer.  They financed a number of productions that often featured African American actors.  Perhaps Gustave’s greatest success was in minstrelsy.  In 1881, he and his brother Charles bought Callender’s Minstrels.  The Frohmans improved costuming and sets, making Callender’s Minstrels the most lavishly outfitted African American troupe in the world. Their success led to the purchase of a second minstrel troupe – Haverly’s. Creating three troupes from the original two, the Frohmans were able to tour the popular minstrel shows more widely.  Following Charles’ death, Gustave joined Daniel in managing the Frohman Amusement Corporation and its motion picture productions.  Gustave died in New York City in 1930.      

Scope and Content
This collection consists of more than 500 pieces of American theatrical, musical, and film memorabilia, dating from 1873 to 1966. Most of the items are from the first two decades of the twentieth century. The collection is dominated by promotional booklets produced by individual theatres and playhouses.  Magazines; newspaper articles; playbills; and programs for specific plays, concerts, operas, and choral performances complete the collection. More than 150 establishments and institutions in twelve states are represented. However, the greatest number are from theatres and playhouses located in cities in New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. Many derive from theatres owned and/or managed by Charles F., Daniel, and Gustave Frohman.

The material is generally arranged by the type of production or performance: plays; concerts and operas; playbills and programs for specific performances; etc. The items are primarily organized geographically by state and then city. Establishments or institutions are listed alphabetically by name.  In most cases, the title of a performance and date found on the cover or within the publication were used in this description to identify the material and determine its year of publication. Play booklets produced by theatrical establishments also featured advertisements, photographs of performers, and titles of upcoming performances.  Not all pieces contained locations, dates, or names of the institutions that produced the promotional material. Every effort was made to maintain the arrangement of the collection’s creator, Charles E. Frohman.
