Series I: Correspondence, 1920-1980 and n.d.


7 boxes (293 folders)
Arrangement: An alphabetical arrangement by last name, corporate name, or original folder title, and chronologically arranged within the folder(s).
This series contains personal and professional correspondence from colleagues, students, organizations, and others, and includes letters in pursuit of copyright for musical theater choreography. Of particular note is the volume of handwritten letters and postcards from Mary Wigman (folders 274-283), written in German between 1920-1972. These were sent from Germany during periods when Wigman was teaching at one of her schools, and from cities around the world when she was vacationing or on tour. Holm's and Wigman's mutual devotion is further demonstrated in letters from colleagues regarding the celebrations Holm organized in honor of Wigman's 70th, 75th and 80th birthdays.
