Oenslager, Donald

(1902-1975).t The prolific scene designer was born in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, graduated from Harvard University in 1923, and saw the first of his more than 200 designs on Broadway in 1925. The earliest of his designs were for musicals and operettas, including Good News (1927), The New Moon (1928), and Girl Crazy (1930). He also designed costumes for about 20 shows, and after 1946, branched into lighting design. As a professor of theatre arts at Yale University from 1925, he taught and influenced many leading designers, just as he had learned from Robert Edmond Jones.
