A glance through the Table of Contents will demonstrate the many categories comprising the fields of Speech Communication and Theatre. The thesis and dissertation titles which have been categorized appeared between the years 1973 and 1978. For those titles which could readily have been placed into more than one category, we did our best to pick the category which seemed to represent the main thrust of the work. We have also provided cross references for all such titles. As addi tional aids to the student, we have provided subject and school indexes. Although we have tried to produce an error-free copy, we feel that a few titles may contain minor mistakes because of the copy sent to us by some of the schools and libraries. Also, as in any bibliography, there may be certain omissions in ours, but hope fully these have been kept to a minimum. Finally, in putting together this work, we hope we have pro vided the serious students of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts with a valuable guide to their own research. ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are above all indebted to Dr. Arthur N. Kruger who not only conceived the idea for this book, but who also played a major role in supervising the work and bringing it to fruition. We also appreciate the introduction he has written for us.
