Anna Sokolow, 1903-2003 (continued)
BOX 8-12, 14-15 Subject Files, 1930-2000
This subseries further documents Sokolow's life and career, but also includes several folders of notes, corrections, and publicity for Rebellious Spirit. Copies of Sokolow's birth certificate and citizenship papers are present, as are other papers related to her personal life, such as transcriptions that Warren made of letters Sokolow sent to her sister, Rose Bank, while traveling in the Soviet Union in the 1930s. Materials record Sokolow's early career at the Neighborhood Playhouse and her later work with the Contemporary Dance System and Player's Project. Two folders contain Warren's detailed notes on Sokolow's body of choreographic works and list premiere dates, dancers, and musicians for many of her pieces. Warren divided Sokolow's time in Mexico and Israel into distinct units before further separating the material by subject. Also included here are two scrapbooks with clippings and ephemera related to Sokolow.
Arranged alphabetically according to subject.

BOX 12-13, 15 Lester Horton, 1906-2007
Clippings, correspondence, dance notation, notes, photographs, programs, and writings collected or created by Larry Warren while researching his biography Lester Horton: Modern Dance Pioneer (1977) and its subsequent edition.
Organized as three subseries.
BOX 12 Correspondence, 1943-2002
Larry Warren corresponded with many notable figures in the dance world while researching Modern Dance Pioneer. This subseries consists of that collected correspondence and includes letters with those close to Horton during his lifetime, such as Frank Eng, Elsie Martinez, Don Martin, and James Truitte. Letters from Agnes De Mille, John Martin, and Ruth Page provide insight on the context of Horton's career within the broader movement of modern dance. The only piece of correspondence not directed to or from Warren is a letter from Horton in the "Miscellaneous" folder. It was sent to Warren by its recipient, Katharine Stubergh. This subseries also contains the original 1968 letter from composer Lou Harrison that Warren reproduced in his book.
Arranged alphabetically by author's name.
