Name index of the book Album of the Yiddish Theatre

Name index of the book Album of the Yiddish Theatre, by Zalme Zylberzweig.  Published by Zalme Zylberzweig, New York, 1937.

The Album of the Yiddish Theatre contains 114 pages of photographs of notables associated with the Yiddish Theater, covering the period from the late 19th century to the mid-1930's. International in scope, the pictures show actors (many in costume), playwrights, composers, and producers, as well as officers of some of the organizations associated with the Yiddish stage. These include the Hebrew Actors Union, Jewish Chorus Union of America, Yiddish Theatrical Alliance, Yiddish Art Theater Company, Genfer Company (Minsk), Azazel Company, Folksbihne Ensemble (1936) and the Vilna Troupe. Each photograph is captioned in both English and Yiddish. In many cases it contains additional references to the plays and their authors.

The Album of the Yiddish Theatre is available at the Library of Congress, New York Public Library, Yale University Library, and the Asher Library in Chicago's Spertus Institute of Jewish Studies, to name a few. The call numbers vary with the library.

This index was prepared by David W. Harris in support of the JewishGen Yiddish Theater and Vaudeville (VT&V) Research Group.  For more information about the group, see http://www.jewishgen.org/InfoFiles/ytheatre.htm.
