1906 Dustin Farnum Virginian Pittsburgh HS Stage Play Program +


This is a great old program from the 1905-1906 Pittsburgh High School Journal Staff's banquet and stage play presentation of Owen Wister's The Virginian starring Dustin Farnum. The 5 1/2" x 7" program reads on the cover "High School Journal Staff 1905-'06" with a drawing of "A Modern Buccaneer" signed by J Bob Showalter. The first page shows the menu and is dated Pittsburgh May 25 1906. The second page is headed "Dustin Farnum in The Virginian - Stage version by Owen Wister and Kirke La Shelle" with the cast of characters. The third page contains a synopsis of scenes and the music program. The fourth page lists the guests of honor/the staff. The last page is headed "autographs" and has 16 signatures. The back of the rear cover shows adhesive residue from being mounted in a scrapbook + there's a 1" x 1 1/4" cutout into which someone has glued a picture of Dustin Farnum. Aside from the condition of the rear cover, this piece remains in excellent condition.

Also included is an invitaton to the March 30 1906 annual entertainment of the Dean Literary Society at the High School Chapel at Bedford Avenue & Fulton Street in Pittsburgh. It remains in undamaged condition & shows the society logo.

Unusual items for a collector of early Pittsburgh memorabilia!
