Summary
The Jack and Madeline Gilford papers contain materials from 1938 though 2005 that chiefly document the Gilfords' professional lives as actors and producers. Jack Gilford was a veteran vaudeville and revue comedian who played comic character roles in many stage and TV productions as well as in a number of films. Madeline Gilford was a film and stage actress and social activist, who later started a career as a producer, working with her husband Jack on many projects. Their production files, which make up the bulk of the collection, contain scripts, notes, photographs, and in the case of producing files, financial and backers materials. Other material includes scrapbooks, headshots, correspondence, Madeline Gilford's committee files, and sheet music and other material that Jack used in his vaudeville and solo acts.
