Historical Data:

The Department of Speech of Washington State University, established in 1923, has produced numerous plays since 1925 as a function of that department. Maynard Lee Daggy headed the Speech Department from its inception in 1923 until 1946 and directed ma ny of the earlier productions. Departmental theatrical finances, publicity, and publications were the responsibility of the University Theater office located in Bryan Hall. In the early 1970s a new site for University Theater productions and the Departm ent of Speech was constructed and subsequently named Daggy Hall.
