Archives’ October exhibit evokes the smell of the greasepaint.

Comedy & tragedy masks The October Object of the Month exhibit by the Institute Archives and Special Collections presents the MIT Community Players’ 1958 Acting Workshop Production of The Madwoman of Chaillot, by Jean Gireaudoux.Each month the Archives exhibits an example from its collections to illustrate their richness and variety. A poster is displayed in the exhibit case opposite Room 14N-118 (and the following month in the Libraries’ kiosk at the Stata Center), and a version is created for the Web. We invite you to browse the online exhibits for a taste of our collections, then come to the Archives and explore them further.
