Administrative / Biographical History

The Rose Shipman Scholarship was a grant awarded by the Royal Institute of British Architects. This grant supported Richard Leacroft in his research about experimental theatres and new audiences in the United States and Canada. Leacroft toured both countries in the summer of 1960 in order to survey a number of theatre buildings. As a result, Mr. Leacroft wrote a report in two volumes:

  • Volume One - A factual report on each theatre visited on the tour.
  • Volume Two - Considerations, conclusions and drawings.
