Gertrude Hoffmann poster

Gertrude Hay Hoffmann was an early 20th-century vaudeville dancer and choreographer.

She founded and choreographed the Hoffmann Girls. Her choreography and special dance effects brought her high praise and rebuke.

During the summer of 2010, Special Collection uncovered a trunk of Hoffmann memorabilia. This included news articles, scrapbooks, photos and theater posters. This poster was one from that collection. The ZSR Preservation Librarian will now tackle stabilizing this and other posters from the collection. For additional information, contact ZSR Library Special Collections:
