Abstract:

Collection of files kept by Ernestine Stodelle regarding her professional life as dancer, teacher, author and dance critic.

Material relates to Stodelle's own career as well as her relationship with important dance figures Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and Jose Limon. Consists of autobiographical items, correspondence, articles, clippings, lectures, programs, reviews, tributes, photographs, dance descriptions and reconstructions. In the general files, there are a few letters written by Stodelle, but correspondence is mostly a range of miscellaneous incoming ones, dated from 1964 to 1998, including many short letters and notes from Charles Weidman, a photocopy of a long personal letter from Anne Morrow Lindbergh, a few letters from Oregon historian Arthur C. Spencer and several from dance teacher Leslie Main. Besides a few ads, clippings and programs relating to Stodelle's dancing career, there are numerous examples of her writing: many articles and reviews on dance and dancers, such as Martha Graham, but primarily on Louis Horst, Jose Limon, Doris Humphrey, Charles Weidman, and the Humphrey-Weidman technique. Among the miscellaneous material are an oral history interview (with cassette), Stodelle's association with the American Dance Theatre, Artspace, Inc., Dance Notation Bureau, Doris Humphrey Society of Oak Park, Illinois, photographer Barbara Morgan, and the Silo Concert Dancers. Also, there are printed items relating to dance, some ephemera and photographs of Stodelle. Besides the general files, there are separate files on Louis Horst, Doris Humphrey, Jose Limon, and Charles Weidman, which consist mainly of announcements, articles, clippings, programs, reviews, personal writings, homages and tributes, and photographs. The Doris Humphrey files include copious notes and directions for Stodelle's reconstruction of Shakers, one of Humphrey's most famous works. The Jose Limon files are largely concerned with the Jose Limon Dance Company, which continued after Limon's death. The Charles Weidman files include many short notes to Stodelle on the backs of programs and announcements, and 1925 photographs and letter from renowned Japanese dancer, Koshiro Matsumoto.
