This series contains records from Amata Grassi's personal and professional life. It includes several business, financial and legal documents. Of particular interest are two diaries (1917, 1932) handwritten by Amata Grassi herself; programs and several handwritten notes, receipts, costume plans and dancing notes related to various of her performances; and an (otherwise unmarked) book on the Russian Ballets. This series also includes records from Amata Grassi's early childhood, letters related to her parents and second husband, Walter Hussen; business cards, function passes and events invites; a few sketches of portraits, a small number of music scores, two telephone number booklets with personal contacts, and a small stamp collection. Empty envelopes found scattered among her papers or previously containing photographs; as well as a few cooking recipes can also be found here.
