philmckinley-poster2 copyIn 2012, Phil McKinley ’73 donated the papers from his long career as a director, producer, actor, and choreographer to Augustana College Special Collections. The materials relate to Broadway, many theater productions, and Ringling Bros., Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Selections from McKinley’s papers are on view in Special Collections (library first floor) from November 18 through December 12. Information on the entire collection can be found in the online collection guide.

A reception in honor of the exhibit and donation will be held Wednesday, December 4, from 3:30 to 5:30 pm. McKinley will be in attendance.

Those interested in the collection may also want to attend Augustana’s winter play, “A Green River,” directed by McKinley and running December 11-15 at Potter Theater.
