Summary
The David Sears papers document his research process for articles and reviews about dance. The collection consists mainly of New York area newspaper clippings on a wide range of topics related to both dance and theater. In addition there are press releases and stock photographs from several organizations. There is also some material related to college and English as a Second Language courses taught by Sears among the limited professional papers in the collection. Because Sears was involved with the puppet community, there also is some material from puppetry guilds in the New York City area.

At the time of his death, Sears was working on a book on Martha Graham and her use of Greek themes in her choreography.
