Gregg D. Wolfe, a native of Columbus, Ohio, was known as "Ohio's champion first-nighter." He attended more than 7,300 performances, ranging from Shakespeare and opera to vaudeville and burlesque.

His personal collection consists of books, photographs, playbills, and other materials relating to American and British theatre at the turn of the century. Programs, reviews, and other memorabilia, dating 1884-1946, constitute the most distinctive part of the collection and provide background for the study of regional theatre. An index and database provide easy access to the playbill collection. The book collection includes many first editions and association volumes, all of which have been catalogued and appear in the CONSORT and OhioLINK databases.
