HOWARD GOTLIEB ARCHIVAL RESEARCH CENTER
ACQUIRES THE PERSONAL ARCHIVE OF
ROBERT BRUSTEIN

PLANS EXHIBITION DECEMBER 8

BOSTON – The Howard Gotlieb Archival Research Center, once called Special Collections, scored a coup in its recent acquisition of the personal archive of Robert Brustein, the recently retired Director of the Loeb Drama Center and founder of the American Repertory Theatre.

On December 8, 2003, the "INNOVATOR ON-STAGE: The Life and Work of Robert Brustein” exhibition will open to the public on the Main Floor of Mugar Memorial Library. On the same occasion, Brustein will be honored and invested as a Fellow of the newly named Center. Nicholas Martin, Artistic Director of the Huntington Theatre Company, will speak and pay tribute to his colleague on the occasion of his investiture.

The collection consists of manuscripts, correspondence, photographs, awards, and other memorabilia spanning Brustein's prolific and distinguished career as an award-winning critic, author, playwright, educator, actor, and director in American theatre. Brustein's collection also includes material from his tenure as English professor and Dean of the School of Drama at Yale University and English professor and Director of the Loeb Drama Center at Harvard University, which spanned 36 years. Under his leadership, the American Repertory Theatre has developed an international reputation and, in the process has enhanced the standing of American theatre on a global stage.

Educated at Amherst College, Yale, and Columbia, Robert Brustein has taught at Cornell, Vassar, Columbia, Yale, and Harvard. Robert Brustein has been published extensively in The New York Times, the London Observer, Partisan Review, Encounter, and Commentary. Since 1959, he has been the primary critic for The New Republic.
