  2. Larry Warren collection on Anna Sokolow and Lester Horton, 1903-2007

    approximately 4,550 items. 15 containers. 9 linear feet. -- Music Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

    Summary:

    This collection documents the research conducted by dancer, choreographer, and educator Larry Warren (1932-2009) while writing his biographies Lester Horton: Modern Dance Pioneer (1977) and Anna Sokolow: The Rebellious Spirit (1991). The clippings, correspondence, dance notation, interviews, notes, photographs, programs, scrapbooks, and writings collected or created by Warren reveal his process in capturing the lives of two major figures in twentieth-century modern dance and have the potential to shed new light on the lives and careers of these artists. The bulk of the collection is devoted to Warren's research on Sokolow, but there is also significant documentation on the movement technique Horton created and taught.
