The collection was assembled by the staff of the Pabst Theater in order to document the history of the building and performances staged there, including those of its predecessor on the site, Das Neue Deutsche Stadt-Theater. It contains two extensive series of files on performances—one arranged alphabetically, the other chronologically—as well as series of programs and playbills, news clippings, photographs, and posters. It consists of original materials as well as reproductions, generally photocopies, created by the Pabst Theater staff from the holdings of Milwaukee-area repositories.
