A brief correspondence between Uday Shankar (1900-1977), a pioneer of modern dance in India, and a New York journalist, taking place over the time that Shankar was touring the United States and England to promote the establishment of his "India Cultural Center," in Simtola, in the Uttarakhand Himalayas. It includes 2 letters, 2 photographs, and more (see below), from Shankar to Rosalie Snyder, who was writing about Shankar and his project for the May 1938 issue of "The American Dancer" magazine. The first, handwritten and signed by Shankar on Hotel Plymouth, New York stationery, 19 January 1938, thanks Ms. Snyder for her article, and mentions his upcoming stops in Madison and Chicago. The next, typed and signed by Shankar on his "Indian Dance and Music Company" letterhead, 1 April 1938, from Totnes, South Devon, is a polite note very briefly mentioning his stops in London and enclosing a signed photographic portrait of himself for the journalist (7.25 x 9.25 in., sepia gelatin print), and another for the magazine (3.25 x 5 in., image of Shankar on stage in full costume, b/w silver gelatin print). The handwritten (April 1938) letter is near fine, just a little wrinkled along bottom edge, with one small water spot blurring the ink. Both photographs are in near fine or better condition -- the signed portrait is produced by Arnold Genthe of New York, and the tiniest bit creased along the bottom edge; and the image for the magazine is just a little silvered. Also includes four drafts of Rosalie Snyder's article (one handwritten on lined paper, three typed) and two copies of the magazine that printed it (edited by Ruth Eleanor Howard, "The American Dancer Magazine," Vol. II, No. 7, May 1938, New York). PLUS promotional material for "Uday Shankar and His Hindu Ballet" tour stops in NYC: two different editions of "S. Hurok presents." (both illustrated in b/w and full-color, with ads), two copies of a Playbill from 48th Street Theatre, one program for the performance at the St. James Theatre, one pamphlet from the "Rockefeller Center Rainbow Room Recitals." There are also three copies of a promotional pamphlet "Uday Shankar's Project for an Art Centre in India" (8pp., staple-bound). The entire collection is in near fine or better condition.
