Admin historyThe Collection was deposited by Mary Streater, daughter of Monica Russell (nee Wigglesworth). Monica was an actor in the rep, and went by the stage name Monica Worth. She collected programmes from the stage plays she went to during the 1940s and 1950s in London. Other programmes from opera and ballet were also offered but it was felt these would be better suited to other archival institutions.
Access conditionsThis collection is available for consultation at the University of Kent's Special Collections & Archives reading room, Templeman Library, University of Kent, Canterbury, CT2 7NU.
