This past week member and volunteer Bruce Cutter and Pat Seymour our Archives Director rolled up their sleeves and took on the Balaban & Katz collection in full force. The Balaban & Katz Collection includes corporate records from the Midwest theatre chain from the late 1920s – early 1960s (including artist contracts, building leases, ledgers and board meeting notes), as well as promotional literature.
The majority of the collection has now been processed and cataloged, and these photos show Bruce and Pat rehousing and arranging materials. Once the arrangement is complete the whole collection will be prepared to be uploaded online for browsing online. Stay tuned for updates!
Are you interested in volunteering in the archive or accessing the Balaban & Katz Collection?
