Letter from Benjamin Lovett to Miss R. Cassily of Mills College, April 12, 1927

Summary

In the mid-1920s, Henry Ford was on a crusade to revive the old-fashioned dances of his youth. To encourage participation, Ford published a dance manual, called "Good Morning," and produced recordings of the dance music (with and without the caller calling the steps). Many schools--including colleges--added traditional American dancing to their physical education curriculum.
