Leavitt, Theodore | University of Illinois Rare Book & Manuscript Library
Name: Leavitt, Theodore
Historical Note: Theodore Leavitt was a print collector and the manager of the Bar Harbor, Maine, Playhouse. It is believed that he sold his collection of theatrical prints to A&B Booksellers in New York, and it is this collection that was later purchased by the University of Illinois in 1953.
Sources: Memo, unsigned and undated (possibly from the records of the University of Illinois Foundation) describing Leavitt's role in compiling the University of Illinois Theatrical Print Collection.
