Scope and Content Note

(A84-91; A84-97; A91-88)
This Sub-Group contains records relating to the University of Missouri-Columbia School of Journalism's student "Stunt", an annual Journalism Week event which originated in 1911. The "Stunt" was a short theatrical production put on by School of Journalism students. After some years, the show became a Journalism Week tradition. Most of these musicals were entirely student productions, with both words and music written by School of Journalism students. Materials pertaining to each show may include news clippings, photographs, sheet music, script, programs, posters, and related correspondence. Also included in this Sub-Group are listings showing "Stunt" play titles, brief plot summaries, locations of performances, cast members, expenses incurred, and profits realized.
Note to Researcher: There were no "Stunts" presented during the years 1915-1919, 1928, and 1935.
