The personal papers of G. Norman Reis pertain predominantly to the University of Pittsburgh's Cap and Gown Club, including souvenir and leaf programs, scripts, music, news clippings, financial records, correspondence, films, photographs, scrapbooks, and phonograph records. These categories are not complete in any of the cases. Besides individual music scores, music can also be found in some souvenir programs.
Items not associated with the Cap and Gown Club include Reis' script,
Harmony Island, the Pittsburgh Athletic Association's 1917 drama club presentation, and unidentified scripts. There are also materials on other all-male musical comedy groups such as Mask and Wig (University of Pennsylvania) and Triangle Club (Princeton University) programs and/or sheet music, University of Pittsburgh fight songs, including a victory song with words by Reis, miscellaneous music, as well as several issues of the
Pitt Alumni Review for which Reis served as chairman and member of the editorial board.
