The Gail Plummer collection of Maud May Babcock audio recordings (1950) consists of 3 copies of a recording of a speech given by Dr. Maud May Babcock in 1950. Plummer, a Brigham Young University (BYU) and University of Utah educated speech instructor, was manager of Kingsbury Hall from 1933 to 1957. Babcock was a prominent figure in Utah theater and physical education who founded the University of Utah departments of speech and of physical education and personally produced more than 300 plays.

Other scrapbooks, theater programs, and family and personal materials are also included. These materials were collected by Gail Plummer, a speech and theater instructor at the University of Utah, and his wife, Elva Plummer.
