Tamiment Playhouse photographs [graphic]. ca. 1921-1987 (bulk 1930s-1950s).

About two-thirds of the images in this collection are of Tamiment Playhouse productions or production-related activities, including from Your Show of Shows, and The Princess and the Pea, which later became the successful musical Once Upon a Mattress. The remainder of the images consist of a series of pages of photographs from scrapbooks. These photographs focus on Camp Tamiment -- its facilities, staff, and campers, from the 1920s through 1941 -- rather than the Playhouse. Many photographs were also produced as postcards by photographers Lewis "Snappy" Goren and Seymour Fischer. The collection includes images of actors such as Danny Kaye, Bea Arthur, Imogene Coca, Dick Shawn, and Carol Burnett; directors such as Max L. Liebman and Joe Layton; choreographers and dancers like Jerome Robbins, and Anita Alvarez; and writers Woody Allen and Neil Simon. There are also images of Ben Josephson and Bertha Mailly, respectively director and founder of Camp Tamiment.
