This collection of more than 1500 plays in German dates from 1865 to 1936 and was used by the German Theater stock company in Milwaukee. Named in honor of Albert O. Trostel, they were donated to the Milwaukee Public Library by his widow, Clara Uihlein Trostel.
During the German Theater’s heyday the theater-going public in Milwaukee saw a wide selection of plays including the works of Shakespeare, Moliere, Ibsen and Goethe. Sometimes English plays were introduced in German translation as was the case with George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” and the works of Oscar Wilde.
If you are interested in viewing materials from the Albert O. Trostel Collection, please contact the Art, Music & Recreation Department at the Central Library by phone at 414-286-3071. Advance requests are strongly recommended.
