Bibliographic notes

A few inter-library loans have come in recently - though just as many were "declined" as there were no libraries or archives who had the material I requested. The publications I looked at included two small-town newspapers from Missouri, the St. Joseph News-Press and the Cape Girardeau Southeast Missourian - each of which yielded Denishawn articles and reviews. The Cape Girardeau was especially rich in material - there was even a large front page article on the Denishawn dancers on the day of their performance, and an even larger front page review the day after. I also got some Denishawn articles and reviews from the Niagra Falls Gazette. I also found reviews for a few films in this New York newspaper. I also looked through Nyugat, a publication from Budapest, Hungary - but found nothing. And, my request for the Ottumwa Daily Courier was declined. Does anyone who read this blog live near that Iowa town?

Lately, I have spent a bit of time adding to and updating the bibliographies for The Street of Forgotten Men and Just Another Blonde, as I have acquired a number of scattered articles, reviews and advertisements from other sources.
