In conjunction with the Oscar G. Brockett Center for Theatre History and Criticism in the Department of Theatre and Dance, The Fine Arts Library announces the opening of the Oscar G. Brockett archive. The archive includes roughly thirty boxes of personal papers and documentation, teaching notes, book notes, research, photographs, negatives, slides, prints, and scrapbooks related mostly to Brockett’s family life and his worldwide travels, along with a selection of volumes from Brockett’s personal library.

A celebration of the archive’s opening will occur in the Fine Arts Library’s Roberts Reading Room, featuring comments from friends, colleagues and former students including Austin American-Statesman columnist Michael Barnes, playwright John Fleming and Brockett’s co-author of “Making the Scene,” Margaret Mitchell.
