Papers of University of Illinois alumna Deborah Langerman consist of material relating to the United Mime Workers, a mime troupe that she co-founded at the University in the early 1970s and of which she remained a principal member. This takes the form of advertisements, brochures (some under the group's original name, the Hard Core/Hardcore Mime Troupe), budgets, contracts, correspondence, photos, recordings (both audio and video), scripts, and miscellaneous documents.
The rest of the material relates to Langerman's work after the United Mime Workers, which sometimes carried the label "Once Upon a Time... Once Upon a Mime." This consists of programs, contracts, logistical information, news articles, and thank-you letters. Additionally, some material dates from her years at Evanston Township High School.
