Description

Summary

Arthur Mitchell (1934-2018) was an American ballet dancer, choreographer, and founder and director of the Dance Theatre of Harlem. This collection contains materials related to his career as a dancer with the New York City Ballet, and his later professional work with the Dance Theatre of Harlem and others. The collection includes administrative records, appointment books, correspondence, invitations, notes, notebooks, photographs, programs, and audio and video recordings.

The records in the collection are primarily arranged into two series: Arthur Mitchell and Dance Theatre of Harlem. In general, while there is some overlap, records in the Dance Theatre of Harlem series relate directly to Mitchell's administrative and artistic work with that organization. The Arthur Mitchell series contains materials that are both personal and professional, such as address books, appointment books, correspondence, telephone messages, notebooks, and photographs. The series also contains materials related to Mitchell's professional career as a dancer with the New York City Ballet, as well as his appearances, awards, and other professional work. The series also contains articles, programs, and other printed materials on dance and other subjects of interest to Mitchell.

The Dance Theatre of Harlem records contain extensive documentation of Mitchell's administrative work with the organization from its early years to the early 2000s. These files contain information on many of the activities of the organization including education programs, fundraising, residencies, outreach, partnerships, performances, public relations, strategic planning, and tours. After the early 2000s, as Mitchell's administrative work became less over time, there are less extensive records. The records of the dance company itself are not included in this collection, as the company still holds its own records. However, there are some administrative records related to the company's activities in the collection, as well as brochures, photographs, programs, and video recordings.

The collection includes both audio and video recordings related to Arthur Mitchell and the Dance Theatre of Harlem, as well as other dance-related recordings. These include events, interviews, music, performances, and samples of work sent to Mitchell by other choreographers.

These primarily document Mitchell's career as a dancer with the New York City Ballet, as well as his later professional activities.

Subseries: Chronological Correspondence, 1972-1988, 1993, 1995-2000

This subseries contains the chronological correspondence files for Arthur Mitchell in his administrative capacity at Dance Theatre of Harlem. This set is incomplete: some years are missing, and other years only contain only outgoing correspondence. The files include both internal and external correspondence, faxes, and memoranda. There is additional correspondence elsewhere in the administrative records in this series.

The filing system changed somewhat over time as this is noted in the container list, and some files in the mid-1980s have become disorganized although they were probably originally filed in chronological order. For early years (1972-1975), the files consist of copies of outgoing correspondence, only. For 1976-1980, there is a set of chronological files for outgoing correspondence, and a general file that includes both incoming and outgoing correspondence. For 1984-1988, incoming and outgoing correspondence was filed together. For 1995-2000, there is mix of incoming and outgoing files.

Dance Theatre of Harlem Puzzle, 1991

The puzzle is currently (2019) on display in the Rare Book and Manuscript Library near the Donor's Room and can be viewed during the Library's normal operating hours.

From the Exhibition Checkslist for "Arthur Mitchell: Harlem's Ballet Trailblazer": In 1991 Frank Bara, actor, artist, masseur, and puzzle-maker, unveiled an extraordinary work of folk art commemorating the Dance Theatre of Harlem's first twenty years. Commissioned by Arthur Mitchell, Bara's multilayered puzzle was eight feet long, had 4,000 pieces, and opened like a polyptych with five panels that told the history of the company and its many communities. At the center, in the form of a Fabergé egg, is the company's home on West 152nd Street, and below this, in chronological order, a list of the works (and their production credits), beginning with Ode to Otis and ending with The Cape, presented between 1969 and 1989. There is a row of major benefactors, and in the surrounding green and red space the angels who guided, inspired, and championed the company—Harry Belafonte, Cicely Tyson, Jessye Norman (with a musical note), George Balanchine, Dionne Warwick, Mary Schmidt Campbell, Tania León (with a baton), Madame Karinska, Lincoln Kirstein, Michel Fokine, Jacques d'Amboise, and many others. "Karel Shook" circles the crown at the apex of the egg, and at the very top in a halo of mint green is "AM" for Arthur Mitchell.

There is a Demo of Dance Theatre of Harlem Puzzle, in which Bara gives more details on the puzzle, available in the video recordings in Series: Recordings.
