The Ida Rubinstein collection includes original items purchased by John Wayne; research material, such as photographs and programs, that Wayne duplicated from other repositories; and original materials obtained by Wayne from Rubinstein's last personal secretary, Lina Koll-Ollivier. The latter category includes correspondence, music manuscripts, libretti, clippings, business and personal papers, and some photographs. The collection contains correspondence from some of the most notable cultural figures of the early twentieth century, inlcuding Alexandre Benois, Sarah Bernhardt, Nadia Boulanger, Romaine Brooks, Paul Claudel, Gabriele d'Annunzio, Manuel de Falla, Gabriel Fauré, André Gide, Arthur Honegger, Jacques Ibert, Darius Milhaud, Robert de Montesquiou, Igor Stravinsky, and Paul Valéry. The libretti include Claudel's manuscript of the complete libretto to Honegger's dramatic oratorio, Jeanne d'Arc au bûcher, and a heavily edited version, in the hand of Valéry, for Honegger's opera-ballet Sémiramis. The music includes holograph manuscripts of works by Honegger and Atoch, Henri Sauguet's working manuscript for portions of the ballet David, and the only known holograph manuscript (piano-vocal score) for Gabriel Fauré's opera Pénélope. In addition, there are photographs of Rubinstein as she appeared in ballets and dramatic works, as well as informal shots during her extensive travels. There are also photographs of numerous friends and colleagues, including Léon Bakst, Sarah Bernhardt, Eleonora Duse, Loie Fuller, Maurice Ravel, and Anna Pavlova. The John Wayne Research series contains various types of material, including clippings and articles; correspondence to and from Rubinstein as well as Wayne's correspondence that documents his quest for Rubinstein materials; notes, outlines, and drafts for Wayne's biography of Rubinstein; microfilmed documents from various libraries; and ancillary research materials on people and subjects related to Rubinstein.
