Oversized Posters, 1957-2011


ARRANGEMENT AND DESCRIPTION

The oversized posters in this collection come from WSU's Theatre and Dance programs. Most of the posters were used for display before coming to the Archives, and may have pinholes, tape remnants, lamination, or other forms of defacement. As a result of the tape and lamination, it was exceedingly difficult to both reorder them and protect posters from the tape remnants or other damaging factors on adjacent posters. Accordingly, materials are in two overlapping series: two folders of laminated posters, ordered chronologically, followed by unlaminated posters also listed chronologically, with a few unlaminated sets of materials (Summer Palace, Stage One, and Crimson Company) in a fourth folder after the others.

The collection was processed in January of 2012 by University Archivist Mark O'English.
