Goucher Collegeis home to the Doris Humphrey Collection
and Doris Humphrey Foundation for Dance

On Thursday, February 7, 2008, dance artist Minos G. Nicolas, and Charles H. Woodford, son of American modern dance pioneer Doris Humphrey, donated to Goucher College the licensing rights to 23 of Doris Humphrey’s works, as well as their memorabilia.

With this donation, Goucher College has the largest collection of Humphrey’s materials in the United States and, through the newly created Doris Humphrey Foundation for Dance, administers the performance and licensing rights to 23 of her works (The Dance Notation Bureau administers ten other works).

The memorabilia is catalogued and placed in the Doris Humphrey Collection, which is available for research in the Goucher College Athenaeum, which opened in March, 2010. The collection will include costumes, recordings, sets, light plots, films, videos, original musical scores, and choreographic notes related to Humphrey’s various works.

Amanda Thom Woodson, Associate Dean of Goucher College, serves as the Foundation’s director. Woodson and dance faculty members, including Professor Chrystelle Trump Bond, serve on a review committee that establishes artistic standards of performance for Humphrey’s works and accept or reject requests to perform the works.
