Biography

John Ellwood Dougherty was a dance critic, who had a long and multi-faceted career in the performing arts, including dancing, acting, production, and teaching. He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on August 3, 1910. Rudolph Valentino and the mysti cal photographs in The American Dancer of the "Oriental dancers," Ruth St. Denis and Ted Shawn, inspired Dougherty and sparked his interests and aspirations in dance and theater.
Dougherty began his dance training at age 11, and in 1928 he received a scholarship to the Denishawn House in New York. As a member of Denishawn's first resident class, he made his professional dancing debut under the direction of Ted Shawn in 1929. He later studied classical ballet with three important figures: Mikhail Mordkin, Alexandre Gavrilov, and Anthony Tudor. He continued to dance professionally, partnering Mary Binney Montgomery in 1937; she was an East Coast socialite who produced dance progr ams. In the 1940's and 1950's, Dougherty participated in theater productions, primarily with the Alden Players of Philadelphia. He acted, danced, choreographed, directed, and designed costumes and make-up.
Dougherty also maintained a professional relationship with Ruth St. Denis, dancing with her group in 1938. Many years later in 1964, Dougherty became St. Denis' personal secretary and manager; his duties included collecting materials on her dances, boo king speaking engagements, and writing press releases and program notes. He partnered St. Denis in her final performance with the Denishawn Dancers at Mt. Tamalpais Amphitheater (Marin County, California) in 1965.
Dougherty moved to the West Coast in 1955, and writing became the primary focus of his career. Dougherty was the Southern California correspondent for Dance Magazinefrom 1956 to 1966 and later wrote for Dance News from 19 71 to 1982. He looked in numerous venues for inspiring performances and future talent, attending both major and minor dance performances, from the Bolshoi Ballet to Sujata and Asoka and to De Rea's Dance Academy. His writing required him to attend hundred s of performances, sometimes more than one each night. He worked with many local and regional dance schools directly on productions, attended dance concerts and recitals, and corresponded regularly with faculty members of dance schools and departments. He compiled program notes for both professional and university dance performances. His major research projects included writing a biographical article on Adolph Bolm and editing the memoirs of Mary Bran, a Los Angeles dance impresario.
Dougherty was a dance educator as well. In the 1960's and 1970's, he taught technique and both dance and theater history at California State University Fullerton, UCLA and UCLA Extension. He also gave lecture demonstrations which accompanied film and l ive performances. His career ended in 1988, when he died at the age of 77.

Scope and Content

The John Dougherty Papers illustrate Dougherty's multi-faceted career and the world of Los Angeles dance and theater from 1956 to 1983. This collection reflects dance in Los Angeles from the local dance academy to the visiting international company. Do ugherty, a dancer, writer and lecturer, created original writings and teaching materials and collected programs, press releases, photographs, correspondence, and clippings. Early materials (ca. 1928-1940), including photographs, document aspects of his performing career as a dancer and actor.
The collection primarily documents Dougherty's writings on dance while he was in Los Angeles. His published and unpublished writings include reviews, biographical articles, theater production liner notes, journals, correspondence, lectures, and backgro und notes. Dougherty collected research materials for his writings on performing arts organizations, performers, dance schools, dance events, dance topics, and other subjects. His calendars, notes, teaching materials, writings, letters, programs, and clip pings chronicle multiple levels and layers of the Los Angeles dance scene. Other materials reflect his interests and writings other than dance.
Dougherty's original files are organized in nine series based on type of material , such as general correspondence files, or by subject, such as international dance companies. Within the series, files are further subdivided by subject and arranged chro nologically or alphabetically. Internal folder arrangement remains in the creator's original order, and archival organization was imposed at the collection and series level. His existing file titles were retained in most cases. Some folders lost labels pr ior to processing, and thus some folder titles were supplied with names.
Many files overlap in scope, content and format. For example, series 3 is comprised of Dougherty's correspondence files, but letters are scattered throughout the collection in subject files he kept on dance companies or individuals. Researchers may nee d to look multiple places for all the available material and information of a particular type or on a specific topic.
