SALLY RAND
The 70-year-old originator of the fan dance sends her thanks.
Typed Letter Signed: "Sally Rand", 2p, 8½x11, separate sheets. Glendora, California, 1974 April 22. On her personal stationery to Mr. Dale Olsen, Los Angeles, Calif. In part: "Thank you for a lovely evening last night, and for including Steve. It was such a lovely party... just enough people to be able to enjoy each other... seeing the Tony's with a group who love theatre and are as stimulated as you. I've always had to watch them alone...and like everything else, sharing a happy is always more fun...." Three corrections in her hand. In the year she signed this letter, the "Queen of the Fan Dance" both became a grandmother and continued her grueling schedule, working an average of 40 weeks before appreciative admirers. Rand introduced her infamous fan dance to the masses on May 30, 1933 at the Chicago World's Fair, using two large ostrich feather fans she had purchased at a second-hand shop. The following year, looking for something new for the Fair, she developed her "bubble dance", using a 60-inch diameter balloon that she had developed herself. She died in Glendora on August 31, 1979. Usual folds, horizontal fold touches upper flourishes of "S" and "R". Fine condition.
