Joanne Woodward papers, 1983-1986 [Addition]
Four volumes, 1983-1986, added to the Joanne Woodward collection contain corrected and annotated transcripts of interviews conducted largely by Ms. Woodward with former members of New York's Group Theatre for a televised history of this long-lasting theatrical training company which produced some of America's finest and best-known twentieth-century actors and actresses.

Those interviewed include Margaret Barker, Morris Charnovsky, Cheryl Crawford, Virginia Farmer, Michael Gordon, Mordecai Gorelik, Elia Kazan, Sidney Kingsley, Tony Kraber, Bobby Lewis, Sandy Meisner, Ruth Nelson, Martin Ritt, and Eunice Stoddard. Ms. Woodward alluded to her own association with the Group in an interview with actress Margaret Barker in New York, 6 March 1985, when the latter turned the question on her and asked-"Did it have any impact on you?" Ms. Woodward replied-"Oh, yes. Well, that's why I'm doing this. Exactly. I grew up on the Group Theatre and I was trained in the Group Theatre."
