Vaudeville News, some issues are online

Unread post by Rick Lanham » Sun Nov 09, 2014 3:02 pm

Maybe they are available elsewhere, but I thought that I should mention that some issues of a publication called Vaudeville News are online. This digital archive is from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. Other Illinois-based titles are also in the collection. Click on "TITLES" to see the list.

The publication seems to be from New York City. The issues available are from 1920-1929 and are searchable:

That same University of Illinois website also carries the New York Clipper all the way back to 1853, and a small run of The Player, the official organ of the White Rats theatrical union.
