Harriet Hoctor Collection, 1917-1972
Description
At the age of 15, Harriet Hoctor made her Broadway debut in 1920 as a chorus dancer in Jerome Kern's musical Sally, produced by Florenz Ziegfeld. In 1923 she starred in Vivian and Rosetta Duncan's Topsy and Eva and toured with the show until 1926. Subsequent Broadway productions included A La Carte (1927), Earl Carrol's Vanities (1932), Hold Your Horses (1933), as well as several Billy Rose musical revues. Having caught the eye of producer Ziegfeld in Sally, Hoctor was to star in four subsequent Ziegfeld-produced musicals: The Three Musketeers (1928), Show Girl (1929), Simple Simon (1930), and The Ziegfeld Follies of 1936. Films include The Great Ziegfeld (MGM, 1936) and Shall We Dance (RKO 1937). Hoctor was also a popular feature as a ballet dancer on the vaudeville Keith/Orpheum Circuit. In 1945 she retired from performing to open a ballet school in Boston. She died in 1977. collection | 10 ft. | 12 boxes | Photographs; scrapbook (1923-1925); clippings; posters, programs and publicity materials; choreographic notes; monographs and poems; correspondence; contracts; music; magazine articles about Harriet Hoctor; personal papers, magazines, costume designs.
