Scope and arrangement
The Karmon Israeli Dancers records consist of administrative records for the group's tour of London, Toronto, and New York City during approximately April to June 1963, mostly documenting the preparations and logistics needed for international travel and performances. The files include programs or announcements for each of the three theaters (Royale Theatre in New York, O'Keefe Center in Toronto, and Saville Theater in London); contracts; a fan letter; budgets and financial records including checks, payroll lists for dancers, musicians, and other group members, and box office statements; international travel records including petitions for visas; publicity information; insurance policies; notes; telegraph and letter correspondence between Alexander Cohen, Gil Shiva, and others; and typed biographies of both Alex Cohen (producer) and Jonathan Karmon (choreographer). The notes include a one-page list of a scenic set-up as well as notes on itineraries and travel logistics. The telegraph and letter correspondence discuss travel arrangements, shipping of costumes and equipment, program information, and musicians needed for the performances.
Material in the collection is in English, with some notes in Hebrew.
Scrapbooks and photographs previously separated from the collection are cataloged under the classmark *MGZEA.
