Summary
Harry Clark (1911-1956) was an actor best known for his work on stage in comedies and musicals. He also had a role on The Phil Silvers Show from 1955 to 1956. The Harry Clark papers (1937-1960) contain clippings, photographs, programs, congratulatory telegrams, and other materials documenting his career. The collection contains material concerning Broadway productions such as Call Me Mister (1946), Kiss Me, Kate (1948), Wish You Were Here (1952), and Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1955); a Philadelphia production of That's the Ticket (1948); and the 1953 touring production of Pal Joey. Pal Joey materials include box office statements for the week of November 23rd. There are also photographs from Pins and Needles (1937), One Touch of Venus (1943), The Phil Silvers Show, and some movies that Clark appeared in. Most of the materials are held in brittle scrapbooks, some of which have been disassembled. Other materials in the collection include contracts, royalty statements, personal notes from colleagues such as Harold Rome, and personal photographs of Clark. A small number of letters and clippings date after Clark's death; these include newspaper obituaries and consolation notes addressed to his wife.
