Ted Shawn Correspondence Collection
Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival

More than 20 boxes of correspondence both to and from Pillow founder Ted Shawn is organized by year (ranging from 1942 to 1971) but is otherwise unprocessed. Following procedures already developed and successfully employed for several boxes, letters will be arranged in alphabetical order and notable correspondents will be entered into the finding aid (in Filemaker). Correspondents already identified include Louise Brooks, Erik Bruhn, Lucia Chase, Jack Cole, Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Alicia Markova, Romola Nijinsky, and Edward Villella.
