Gaieties Exhibit Now on Display

Since 1911, the Ram’s Head Theatrical Society has celebrated the annual  Big Game contest between Stanford and Cal with an original musical  program. To commemorate the 100th birthday of this campus tradition,  staff in the University Archives have created an exhibit of programs,  posters, and other memorabilia from Gaieties past. It’s on view from now  through the end of Fall Quarter in the Bender Room, on the fifth floor of  Green Library’s Bing Wing. Exhibit items were selected from the Stanford University Publications and Ephemera Collection and the Stanford University Archives Poster collection.

The University Archives also holds the Ram’s Head records from its first fifty years.

This year’s Gaities, titled Leland Junior Must Die, will premiere on November 17th at Memorial Auditorium.
