The Wickes Collection was assembled by Elbert A. Wickes, theatrical impresario and manager of lecture tours for world celebrities during the 1930s-1940s. The collection brings together papers and books (often inscribed to Wickes) of the celebrities whose tours he arranged; much of the material relates to the Abbey Players of Dublin whose three American tours he produced and managed. Among the papers are photographs, scrapbooks, memoranda, correspondence, financial documents and contracts, and theater memorabilia.
