Typescript of a 1910 autobiography of George Clissold, Mormon convert and English immigrant to Salt Lake City, Utah. Also includes a typewritten biography of Charles Edward Clissold, his oldest son, written by Lenora Pearl Clissold Vincent, Charles Edward's daughter, which tells of his early life, marriages, children, immigration to Utah, work, family life, acting experiences, and death.
Printed broadside. The item advertises the coming attractions and performances of the Salt Lake Theatre Company from Saturday 31 Oct. to Monday 2 Nov. of an unspecified year. The years 1857, 1863, 1874, 1885, 1891, 1896, and 1903 fit these criteria.
Two letters and one newspaper clipping. The clipping was published by the Itahca Journal News on 28 July 1962 and relates to the family of Brigham Young (1801-1877) and to the Salt Lake Theatre. One of the letters is from Dorothy Dye to Ernest L. Wilkinson, president of Brigham Young University, relating to the newspaper clipping. The other letter is from Wilkinson to the Brigham Young University Archives also regarding the clipping.
Collection includes 45 photographs (including platinum, gelatin silver, and albumen prints), three tintypes, and two safety film copy negatives with images of early Utah actors, friends, and the Margetts family. Photographs were taken between the 1860s and the 1910s.
One handwritten script for the play "The Mystic Spell" by an unknown author believed to have been written in the 1880s. The script is not for a true "pantomime," since some of the parts involved speaking. The item was found in the ruins of the Salt Lake Theatre in Salt lake City when it was torn down.
Four color postcards of historic sites in Salt Lakes City, Utah, and Nauvoo, Illinois, related to early Latter-day Saint Church and Utah history. Postcards depict a compilation of images of the Joseph Smith Homestead, Mansion House, and the Nauvoo House; an artistic rendering of the Nauvoo Temple; the Lion House in Salt Lake City; and the Salt Lake Theater. The postcards were collected by Larry Faria. Dated approximately 1920s to 1940s.
Handwritten and signed letter, dated 5 Feb. 1873, and addressed to Brigham Young, second president of the Mormon Church. Reynolds writes about his concerns for the state of the Salt Lake Theatre.
This collection was loaned by the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers, Salt Lake City Museum, for a graduate student to read and study the materials for a Masters thesis. This loan was made on the agreement that the collection be microfilmed and a copy given to the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers. The collection has now been returned to its owner.
