Article on Cunningham archives

This is great, Drew, thank you. I've only had time to glance over the piece, but there's much to chew on here. I pulled this tidbit:

While the Graham case may have provided a cautionary tale for the Cunningham Foundation, Cunningham himself was more concerned with the fact that the work of prominent choreographers often ends not in litigation, but oblivion. Erick Hawkins, who died in 1994, famous in his lifetime but largely unknown now, left his works to his wife, a composer and frequent collaborator. When she died, there was no infrastructure in place to preserve Hawkins’s works. Today, his dances are virtually unseen.
