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.
