BOX 5 Printed Matter, 1935-2006
Clippings, reviews, articles, essays, research materials, newsletters, and other publications related to Muriel Manings, William Korff, New Dance Group and associated artists, and other performing arts events or individuals.
Arranged as two subseries: Clippings and Articles. Clippings are generally arranged chronologically by decade. Where a specific performing arts group or event is of major significance to this collection, such as the Sandhog production or the New Dance Group gala, these can be found within the folders of their respective decades. Articles are organized alphabetically by author's last name, or, in a few instances, by title of the publication if that issue includes multiple relevant articles.
