Special Collections & Archives Exhibit

In 1999 Shakespeare scholar and director Ronald Watkins donated his papers to ZSR Special Collections. This gift came to Wake Forest largely through the efforts of WFU Theater professor James Dodding, a longtime friend of Watkins. Our mini-exhibit shows some highlights of the Watkins collection, documenting his early interest in Shakespearean original practices and his involvement in the reconstruction of the Globe Theatre.
