My primary conclusions about this scrapbook are an emphasis from St. Ignatius College on original composition, from both students and professors. I saw through the direction of Frederick Karr on the plays “In the Fool’s Bauble” (1907) and “Richelieu” (1908) the potential of valuing seventeenth century French theatre for its establishment of the neoclassical “standard.” The construction of the Loyola University campus and the creation of the Loyola University Press allowed plays produced by Loyola and St. Ignatius affiliates to be sold and possibly spread. I learned that methods of advertisement for plays took the form of published articles in Chicago newspapers and letters and forms personally inviting members of other colleges and alumni to attend.
