The Jane Minesinger theatre programs collection contains programs gathered by Jane Minesinger (1934-2016), a golfer and theatre enthusiast. Minesinger's father, Charles H. Eisenhardt, was an avid patron of the arts and supporter of musical theater, as well. The bulk of the programs come from productions staged from 1918 to 1947 at theatres in Baltimore, Maryland. The files are arranged chronologically. Additional programs include theatres in Washington D.C., as well as six programs from cities outside Maryland.
The collection is open for research use. Materials from this collection must be used in the Michelle Smith Performing Arts Library's Irving and Margery Morgan Lowens Special Collections Room during SCPA’s operating hours.
