Abstract:

Correspondence (primarily), musical sketches, a will, an announcement, and a portrait.

The bulk of the correspondence is from (the already twice widowed and remarried) Lenya to Milton or Bunny during the period from 1970 to 1978, after they had moved to Palm Springs, California. In it, she reports informally on her professional activities, trips, her emotional states, events in the lives of mutual acquaintances, and in general, on life "on the eastern front." The professional activities described include performances, appearances, and contributions to David Drew's collection of biographical information on Weill.

Also included are: 1) undated sketches by Weill of the "albumleaf" "Ode to Milton Arthur Paul Ganiff [sic] by Maxweill Kurtson [i.e. Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson]" and another consisting only of the melody of Victor Hollaender's setting of the line "See what the boys in the backroom will have" from the song of the same name sung by Marlene Dietrich in the film "Destry rides again"; 2) a copy of Lenya's first will, executed in 1963 (in which she expressed her intention to leave all her wearing apparel and jewelry to Bunny and much of her library to Milton); 3) a letter from 1964 from Bill Brownell at Young ? 4) an announcement from 1974 of a special meeting of the members of the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music; 5) a portrait by Caniff of Lenya in the role of Jenny in The threepenny opera; and 6) a chart relating the keys of the piano with notation of their pitches on treble and bass staves.
