The Theater in Mobile, Alabama: Transcriptions from the Charles Dickson Collection
Charles Dickson was an amateur historian who spent many hours researching the history
of this area. His collection contains microfilmed copies of his handwritten three-ring
notebooks. Included within the notebooks are Dickson's histories of the city's sports
and military activities, the theater, baseball, and settlers, as well as retrospectives
on wars throughout American history, studies of the colonial powers and Indians of
Mobile, and a look back at the Reconstruction period.
