Abstract:

Almost all items come from after 1950. Among the most important: a diagram of her family tree; several letters from Kurt Weill's family shortly after his death, notably from his brother Nathan; contracts pertaining to Lenya's performances in the 1970's; numerous royalty statements for productions of Weill's works in the 1970's; invitations to the White House; das Grosse Verdienstkreuz awarded by the German government in 1969; numerous recognitions of her performances or service; her collection of Brecht's writings, articles on Brecht, programs, and reviews; a number of photographs, calendars, and postcards publicizing her singing career and her starring role in Cabaret; several photo albums recording both her professional and personal life.

The collection is heterogeneous, including many relatively ephemeral items, a large number of photographs (mainly of family and friends, though Burt Reynolds is represented), and drawings by Richard Ely and Boris Aronson. Memorabilia from Joe Masteroff, Milton Caniff, Maxwell Anderson, and Lys Symonette may also be found. Financial records are rather sparse, but enough have been preserved to give some picture of her business dealings in the 1970's.
