I'm sorry, I don't know a title or a year. I just have a vague recollection of reading about its existence. Whether it was a memoir by one of them or not, I can't say -- sorry! Maybe someone else will know, though. Thanks for raising the question. There SHOULD be a book.

with this presentation title listed;
" Making Ballet American: Catherine Littlefieldıs Choreography for the Philadelphia Ballet, 1937-1938." 2000 Feet. World Dance Congress. Philadelphia, PA. April 1999
There is an email link to the author, Nancy Brooks Schmitz, she might know if there is a book as she has written a paper on the topic?

atm, I think you're onto something. The early history of Serenade is fascinating (the little I know of it). It was a very different ballet then, not only because of the costumes, and the fact that the chunkier, more athletic bodies we see in photos MUST have looked different dancing those steps, but because most (each?) dancer had a tiny solo. But it didn't have that pretty, pretty "jeune fille" look, I think.
I used to love Dance Theatre of Harlem's version because they danced it with such power.

It's a long way to Philadelphia via England and Guam!
