Seller ID 6690
This is a Program from the February 13, 1962 performance by Holbrook at the Swasey Chapel, in Granville, Ohio. It was a benefit program to create a Scholarship in Theatre Arts at Denison University. The program is a single piece of a rectangular paper, folded twice to form six panels. It is 9 inches tall and 5 3/4 inches wide when folded. The autograph is to the right of a photo of Holbrook (36 years old) and above a photo of him made up as Twain. When opened the first page is a list of possible selections for the program. The second is background information about Holbrook and the purpose for this event. There are two pages of lists of donors to the scholarhsip. The back page is blank. There is a note that the idea for the Benefit program was his. He asked that all the proceeds go to establish the scholarship with interest from the principle to go to a student showing unusual dramatic talent. The list of selections has a clever note about why the program is tentative. And, there is a statement titled "Music". It says: "A trombone player was engaged, but is unreliable and should not be expected. " There is a tiny spot and a faint hint of a soft crease or two. Generally, well cared for. Holbrook graduated from Denison University. ; .
