Scope and arrangement
This collection contains a small group of manuscript items of Edward Gordon Craig[EGC]-Isadora Duncan[ID] interest. The materials came from the archives of Edward (“Teddy”) Craig, son of Edward Gordon Craig and grandfather of Tom Craig, from whom the Dance Collection obtained this collection. All of the items pertain to Isadora Duncan.|||There are several small booklets or notebooks made by EGC with notes about ID, one containing two manuscript poems with notes by EGC to ID. There is a pen and ink drawing with notes entitled “Our first pic-nic alone, 1905.” In addition, there is a 1905 photograph of EGC taken by ID and signed by EGC in the “Biddecombe Bay” booklet, and a photograph of Deidre, daughter of ID and EGC, taken in Egypt in 1912 with notes on the back by EGC. The collection also contains two draft letters by EGC to Martin Shaw concerning ID.
