Notes
Acquisition: Gift; Estate of Josephine Butler.
Biographical/historical: Josephine DeNatale Butler, 1911-1996, was a dance educator, historian, and author. She began her career in fashion design, but in 1936 she and her husband Albert Butler founded the Albert Butler School of Dance, which she directed for fifty years. They also collaborated on the monumental Encyclopedia of social dancing, versions of which first appeared in the late 1960s. In 1970 she created an archive of social dancing, encompassing print materials, moving images, and other memorabilia, at the Dance Collection (today known as the Jerome Robbins Dance Division) of New York Public Library. These prints were among a collection of additional materials donated to the Library by her estate in 1996, selections from which appeared in the Library's exhibition Cotillion to cakewalk: social dance prints, presented from May 19-Sept. 13, 1997.
