Administrative History

The Junior Farce was an original farce written and performed by members of the Junior Class as part of their Junior Day celebrations. Junior Day usually took place in December of the junior year; the plays are identified by the graduation year of the class, the play was actually presented in the preceding academic year.

Scope and Content Note

The collection consists primarily of bound typescripts of the texts of the plays, although a few of them are actually printed.
The collection is not complete; it is assumed that Joseph C. Rowell, University Archivist for most of this period, solicited these texts each year but was not able to obtain the missing years.
