Barrie Duffus Tucker


Recommended Posts

We received the following inquiry:

My dear, long time friend, retired ballerina Barrie Duffus Tucker may have used the name Barrie Ingram early in her career and Barrie Allegra Duffus or Barrie Allegra Duffus Tucker at the end of it. Barrie danced all over the world but didn't talk much about her accomplishments.

Can you give me any information on how to research her career?

I would love to acquire a copy of anything you have with Barrie dancing in it, or at least a clear picture of her.

Thank you.

I have contact information in case anyone has a picture.

If there are any commercial recordings of Ms. Tucker's work, I'm sure our inquirer would appreciate knowing what they are.
