DANILOVA MEMENTOS GO TO LIBRARY OF CONGRESS.
There is a wealth of material for scholars to examine and fans to view at the Library of Congress, although Kokich did say that some of the Danilova memorabilia disappeared during the two years the estate was in probate, and that some letters were destroyed by a flood in Danilova's apartment. And besides the private letters, Kokich couldn't part with a pair of the Glove Seller's gloves from Massine's ballet Gaite Parisienne (the way Danilova tried them on for customers implied so much!) and the chic hat that she wore as the legendary teacher Madame Dahkarova in the movie The Turning Point.
