Custodial history

Immediate source of acquisition

There are three principal sources for the scripts in this collection.  Dr. Lillian Manzor of the University of Miami's Modern Languages and Literatures Department has donated the bulk of the typescripts.  A number of scripts were transferred to this collection from the Herberto Dumé Papers and the José Corrales Papers. Scripts not directed, produced, written, translated, or adapted from Dumé or Corrales were moved to the Theater Scripts Collection.
