Administrative history

The Cathespian Guild was organized in Montreal in 1939, with the primary object of fostering an interest in Catholic theater. Its aim of encouraging and developing a higher standard of dramatic work among English-speaking Catholics prompted the Guild to inaugurate the Catholic Drama Festival in 1940.

Custodial history

The Cathespian Guild records were given (date of deposit unknown) to Loyola College's Vanier Library by Margaret Tansey, and they were transferred to the Concordia University Archives in 1999. The fonds was transferred from Concordia University's Records Management and Archives Department to Concordia University Libraries' Special Collections March 16, 2016 and April 13, 2016.

Scope and content

The fonds provides information on the annual Catholic Drama Festival organized by the Guild between 1940 and 1953.

The fonds contains some handouts on the Cathespian Guild and a few programs and photographs of some of the annual Catholic Drama Festivals. It also contains the Drama Festival award book entitled Award for Distinguished Achievement in Catholic Theatre.
