Pepperdine Special Collections and University Archives is pleased to announce the addition of a new collection to the archives: The Alan Reed Papers. The collection is available both in the University Archives and online through Pepperdine Digital Collections.
Alan Reed was a noted film, stage, and voice actor from the 1930s through 1960s and is best known as the original voice of Fred Flintstone on the Hanna-Barbera cartoon show The Flintstones.
The collection includes photographs, correspondence, newspaper clippings, and short essays that Reed wrote. Each document and photograph has been scanned and uploaded at a high resolution to allow detailed in-browser zooming with options to download. Additionally, Reed’s biography Yabba Dabba Doo! is available to checkout at the Payson library.
