Memorial for Anna Duncan, Isadora's daughter

Program Title:
Memorial for Anna Duncan, Isadora's daughter
PRA Archive #: 

This program seems to be a recording at dancer Anna Duncan's (1894-1980) funeral or memorial. Anna Duncan was one of the adopted daughters of dancer/choreographer Isadora Duncan known as the "Isadorables," born in Switzerland in 1895 as Anna Denzler. Part one is a reading of a tribute to Ms. Duncan, author and reader are unannounced (possibly read by Kathleen Quinlan? Her name is written on box). The second part may have been accidentally recorded because there is a lot of noise around the microphone and contains poems, readings, and stories about Ms. Duncan. Also written on box is "M. Maher/Wunder". No broadcast info available.
