I had often heard the same was true of Isadora Duncan, but while at IU I saw
film from their archives that was attributed as her dancing at a Garden
party. Does anyone know if that was ever authenticated?

VIDEOLIB is intended to encourage the broad and lively discussion of issues relating to the selection, evaluation, acquisition,bibliographic control, preservation, and use of current and evolving video formats in libraries and related institutions. It is hoped that the list will serve as an effective working tool for video librarians, as well as a channel of communication between libraries,educational institutions, and video producers and distributors.
