Note
  • Interviews with Rachael Yocom, chairman of the dance department at the School of the Performing Arts, New York [as of 1961, part of the Fiorello H. LaGuardia High School of Music & Art and Performing Arts], Robert Lindgren, dean of the dance department at the North Carolina School of the Arts [as of 2008, University of North Carolina School of the Arts], Winston-Salem (N.C) , and Harry Bernstein, chairman of the dance department at Adelphi University, Garden City (N.Y.), conducted by Alvin H. Reiss; recorded and broadcast in 1965 by radio station WNYC, New York, on its series, World of dance.
  • The sound quality ranges from good (interviews with Rachael Yocum and Harry Bernstein) to poor (interview with Richard Lindgren, which is low volume and marred by "tape hiss"). However, except for the beginning of the interview with Richard Lindgren, the speakers' voices are easily intelligible.
  • The processing and cataloging of this recording was made possible in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature. The support of the National Endowment for the Arts is also gratefully acknowledged.
