Jess Meeker Collection
Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival
The composer Jess Meeker's collaboration with Ted Shawn encompassed the entire history of Shawn's Men Dancers (1933-1940), and Meeker's involvement with Jacob's Pillow continued until 1997. His 15 boxes of papers include many original manuscripts, but there is no formal finding aid for this specific collection. At the very least, individual names of compositions and other folder-level descriptions will be added to the Filemaker finding aid.
