On the occasion of the death of ballet genius William Dollar in 1986, in the Philadelphia Inquirer:
Though his family plans no funeral or memorial service, Mr. Dollar's brother John said yesterday that the family was making plans for a "cocktail party for dancers - maybe in New York, or one here and one in New York."We can all identify with that.
The party will be a kind of retrospective, perhaps with dancers performing selections from Mr. Dollar's works, his brother said.
"It'll be something wonderful for his spirit - outdoors, because that's what he loved," his wife, Yvonne, said yesterday.
That is just what William Dollar would have wanted, his brother said. "He's up in heaven teaching the angels - putting them in shape.
"He did nothing else except dance."
William Henry Dollar (20th April 1907 - 28th February 1986)
