The Papers of Norman Sweetser, which cover the period 1913-1975, contain an assortment of materials spanning Sweetser's career in the New York theater and radio broadcasting worlds of the early to mid-twentieth century. Sweetser's activities brought him in contact with many show business personalities of the day, whom Sweetser captured in photographs and portrait sketches. The collection includes a set of these large portrait sketches, as well as two scrapbooks containing smaller portraits and photographs covering Sweetser's college days through his radio career. The scrapbooks also contain theater programs, newspaper and magazine clippings, correspondence, and miscellaneous items such as membership cards.
