Fact Check: Erick Hawkins

3 posts in this topic

my koegler and the more recent edition by craine/mackrell say that hawkins was graham's first male dancer. was he also her FIRST husband?

i have mentioned this in my first draft of a review, and want to check it here, if anyone knows. if not, no drama! :)

From what I've read in her autobiography "Blood memory" and in Agnes De Mille's Graham biography, yes, he was her first husband (and, a far as I know, the only husband she ever had).

oh! OK. thank you estelle.

i have used the signature quote of one of the posters here - a quote from erick hawkins - in a review i just wrote, and wanted to be sure i had my descriptive facts right. can't recall which poster quotes him - but i assume it's one of the guys. i didn't go searching for THAT poster, to ask, because i imagine some people just use a quote they like in their signature, without necessarily knowing much about the original source.

thanks again.
