Archival description area
Materials were donated to Dalhousie University Archives in three accessions in 2012. Prior to that, the materials were in the custody of Catherine Banks.
Scope and content
Fonds contains materials documenting Catherine Banks' professional playwrighting career beginning with her first published play, Eula's Offer. Materials include research notes and drafts of scripts (both handwritten and typed), correspondence, contracts, production and publicity materials, a videocassette, a DVD, photographs, sketches, and a small selection of personal papers.
Immediate source of acquisition
Arrangement has been imposed by the processing archivist, using the original order of the materials whenever possible. The fonds is primarily organized into series based on the title of the play. Most series are further divided into sub-series. Files in each series or sub-series are listed chronologically, unless otherwise noted.
