Scope and Contents of the Materials

The Center for Soviet and East European Studies in the Performing Arts opened in 1969 with Unity Theater actor and director Herbert Marshall as Director. This collection documents the Center's beginnings, day-to-day operations, student and faculty staff, and accomplishments, including productions, grants, and press coverage. The Center's director, Herbert Marshall, included his own writing and research, which focuses primarily on Sergei Eisenstein, correspondence, and budget and expansion proposals. Also included are film strips and color slides depicting Soviet art from the early 12th century until the late 20th century.

Biographical Note

The Center for Soviet & East-European Studies in the Performing Arts began in 1969.  Its establishment was influenced by the United States's movement to ease Cold War tensions and develop closer cultural and trade relations with the Soviet Union.  The Center's Spring 1969 Bulletin notes that scholars believed that developing these relations would require studying not only Soviet Union and Eastern European economies, but cultural history as well.  The Bulletin also states that the Center's objective was to "maintain a repository of information for interested scholars on heretofore untouched areas of Soviet and East-European cultural life.  Specifically...the theory and practice of the performing arts as they have been pursued in pre-revolutionary Russia and the USSR, Poland, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Bulgaria, Rumania, and Yugoslavia."  It was directed by Herbert Marshall, a British born filmmaker who studied under Soviet director Sergei Eisenstein.  Marshall retired from Southern Illinois University in 1979.

In 1971 the name changed to the Center for Soviet & East-European Studies but maintained its arts and culture focus.
