Immediate Source of Acquisition
Materials were physically brought to Special Collections and Archives by Joan Brown, president of the Friends of Carson-Brierly Dance Library in 2010, but were a gift of Andrea Sears-Van Nest to Joan Brown, the daughter of Vera Sears, a former director of the Children's Dance Theatre at the University of Denver Lamont School of Music Dance Department. A letter received with the accession, dated 2002, indicates that Vera Sears organized the materials with the intent of donating them to the Carson-Brierly Dance Library.
Further accruals are expected.
