The collection of the Austrian theatrical producer and director Max Reinhardt (1873-1943) contains over 240,000 papers, personal letters, documents, and original promptbooks of Reinhardt productions; over 14,000 photographs and negatives, including a number of costume and set designs; films of some of Reinhardt's productions; and a portion of Reinhardt's personal library.
Papers of the actress Tillie Losch and 300 of her paintings are also part of the archive. Online cataloging of both archival materials and books in the Reinhardt collection is ongoing. At present many of the books are uncataloged, and access to most of the archival materials is through a card catalog.
The Max Reinhardt Archives and Library are housed in Special Collections at Binghamton University. Access to the Reinhardt Collection is by appointment as well as during posted hours when regular classes are in session. Inquiries may be made to:
