You do us proud, sir! David Stone spent years collecting Gilbert and Sullivan memorabilia: original manuscripts, production materials, letters and personal effects of dramatist/librettist W.S. Gilbert, composer Arthur Sullivan and impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte. Mr. Stone and his wife, Ann, are giving their massive collection to the University Libraries’ Special Collections and Archives. “The University Libraries is honored to be the future home of this collection with its inestimable research value for Mason faculty and students as well as scholars world-wide. The collection complements existing strengths in performing arts collections such as the Arena Stage Archives and Federal Theatre Project Collections,” said Yvonne Carignan, Head, Special Collections & Archives. The Stones also created the David and Annabelle Stone Gilbert and Sullivan Endowed Fund for cataloging and preserving the collection. Read more!
