Historical Note

Dramatic productions began at Oregon Agricultural College in the 1890s; the Mask and Dagger Club was formed in 1912 "to encourage and promote dramatic work". A theater program was formally established in 1920 as part of a new Public Speaking and Dramatics Department (now the Speech Communication Department). Dramatic productions were presented at the Majestic Theater in downtown Corvallis and a small theater in Benton Hall until 1950 when a campus structure was remodeled into the Mitchell Playhouse. The University Theatre moved to Withycombe Hall in 1991 after Mitchell Playhouse was declared unsafe.

Content Description

The University Theatre Photographs consist primarily of images of dramatic productions at Oregon State from the 1920s through 1950s. The collection also includes images of set and scene construction, make-up sessions, and costume design as well as portrait photographs of individual cast members. Photographs of theater productions at the Majestic Theater as well as the Mitchell Playhouse on campus are part of the collection. Several images of the Oregon Agricultural College debate team are also included. Many of the photographs were taken by Hise Studio and Howell's Studio of Corvallis.

The collection includes a variety of formats: photographic prints, acetate (safety) and nitrate negatives, digital prints, and color transparencies. A majority of the collection (~1300 items) consists of photographic or digital prints, many with accompanying camera negatives. The negatives number about 600 total; about 150 are nitrate negatives. Most of the negatives are 8x10 inches; some are 4x5 or 5x7 and there are a few 35 mm negative frames. There are accompanying photographic prints or digital prints for most of the negatives in the collection. Digital prints are low-resolution prints from scans of nitrate negatives for which there are no photographic prints. Photographic prints for which the original nitrate negative is part of the collection, but has a different number, have been labelled as such. The collection also includes 6 color positive transparencies (5x7 and 8x10 inches).

The images in Series I have been assigned individual item numbers. Item numbers P112:001 - P112:487 were assigned by the Archives. Item numbers 982-25-159 thru 982-25-512 and 893-4-601 thru 893-4-661 were assigned by the Horner Museum; these numbers were retained when the materials were transferred to the Archives.

Several images in the collection are available online in the Best of the Archives digital collection.

929 prints, 317 negatives, 148 nitrate negatives, 29 digital prints and 2 color transparencies

Series I consists primarily of photographs of theater productions, most of which are identified by title and dates of the production. Many of the photographs were taken by Howell's Studio or Hise Studio in Corvallis. The series also includes portrait photographs of student actors as well as images of stagecraft, such as lighting, set and scene construction, make-up sessions, and costuming. Prints are available for most of the negatives and the series includes multiple prints of some images. For some images, the negatives and their accompanying prints have been assigned different numbers; cross references are provided for these. The negatives are primarily 8x10 inches; some 4x5 and 5x7 negatives are also included. Digital prints are low-resolution prints from scans of nitrate negatives for which there are no photographic prints. Several images of the Oregon Agricultural College debate team are also included.
