Additionally, the collection includes syllabi, reading lists, and course examinations crated by Maynard while at UC Irvine; typescripts and notes for her publications; materials relating to various academic service on committees at UC Irvine; and audiocassettes of interviews with dancers and choreographers. Of particular interest for researchers are videocassettes of choreography; movies and television shows about dance in the twentieth century; and correspondence from noted ballet dancers and correographers Marianna Tcherkassky, Anthony Tudor, Hugh Laing, and Suzanne Farrell.
