BOX 1-100 DF Design Materials, 1941-1987
This series contains a wide range of visual and textual materials for productions designed or produced by Smith: drop elevations, set renderings, scenic and prop details, ink and pencil sketches, sketchbooks, blueprints and technical drawings, fabric swatches, research materials, production schedules, and other miscellaneous items. The container list largely does not specify individual designs, as most renderings and scenic details have working titles that are very general and provide little context unless they are viewed first hand. Descriptions of individual items are, however, found in a supplemental print index that is available in person upon request. Contents of boxes are identified only for especially notable productions or those with significant quantities of design materials. Digital images of select renderings are indicated by their digital ID numbers.
Principal file formats: .tif, .psd.
Arranged alphabetically by production title, then chronologically therein.
