Summary
The May O'Donnell papers partially document O'Donnell's career as a modern dancer, choreographer, and teacher. She is considered a pioneer in the development of American modern dance, especially abstract dance. The photographs include O'Donnell alone, as a performer, with other artists, and with Ray Green. The promotional materials include playbills and performance programs, program notes, flyers, press releases, and brochures. The collection holds several important programs that are considered rare, including examples of O'Donnell's 1930s performances for dancer-choreographer Estelle Reed; programs from her 1940s collaborations with José Limón, and from a concert with Nina Fonaroff. In addition, the papers include clippings, articles, reviews and an O'Donnell obituary.
