The Paul Baker Papers consist of correspondence, photographs, administrative records, scripts, playbills, blueprints for theatre construction, periodical clippings and scrapbooks spanning the years 1925-1976 with the bulk of the material concerning the mid-century. The material from the latter years relates to Baker’s tenure at Trinity University, but the majority of the collection is from his years with Baylor University and his work with the Dallas Theatre Center. The collection also contains a small series of Kitty Baker’s correspondence and personal papers.
This series contains material that does not fit easily in any other category including material from Paul Baker’s experience in WWII, a map, sheet music, some poems and other materials that do not have to do with theatre.
