Sally Wolff, a Southern literature professor at Emory University, uncovered the connection between the diary and Faulkner when she was working on a book about the people who knew Faulkner. The diary, Wolff learned, was written by Francis Terry Leak and pored over by Faulkner for nearly 20 years. The diary served as a source of names, incidents and details for Faulkner’s work. Wolff will discuss her book about the Faulkner-diary connection, “Ledgers of History,” in a lecture at the Library of Congress on Aug. 9 in the Pickford Theater of the Madison Building. Faulkner, a native of Mississippi and one of America’s most important literary figures, is the author of “The Sound and the Fury,” “Light in August,” “Absalom, Absalom!” and other novels. Faulkner’s work, mostly set in fictional Yoknapatawpha County, is known for its rich depictions of Southern life and characters. Faulkner was a close childhood friend of Edgar Wiggin Francisco Jr., the great-grandson of the diary’s author. According to Wolff, Francisco’s son remembers Faulkner visiting his dad at their home in Holly Springs, Miss., throughout the 1930s. Faulkner was fascinated with the diary’s several volumes, read them carefully and always took copious notes. The lecture, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the Humanities and Social Sciences Division, the Literature Section in the U.S. General Division of the Acquisition and Bibliographic Access Directorate, and the Poetry and Literature Center.

The impact of Klotz’s work, however, carries on. “For her, what was seen on stage was more than just costuming, it was kind of like high-end fashion,” Zvonchenko says. “It was the best. It was sheer quality melded together with high theatrical fantasy and imagination.” – Mark Hartsell The costumes for “Pacific Overtures” were some of the most extravagant by a designer known for luxurious work and materials. Music Division Zvonchenko, a curator in the Music Division. The Library recently acquired nearly 900 original designs produced by Klotz for the stage or film – including her award-winning work on “Follies,” “A Little Night Music,” “Pacific Overtures” and “Grind.” Klotz, who died in 2006, got her start as an assistant to the legendary Irene Sharaff on the original production of “The King and I” in 1951. She later collaborated closely with composer Stephen Sondheim and director Harold Prince. The most extravagant creations among the Library’s acquisitions are her work for the Sondheim/Prince production of “Pacific Overtures,” a tale of two friends caught in the Westernization of Japan in the mid-1800s. The designs for a cast of admirals, ambas- Music Division Florence Klotz designed costumes that were rich in detail, luxurious in fabric, high in drama and – at least in one case – extremely heavy. Some of costumes Klotz created for the musical “Follies” weighed so much that they had to be dropped from above by a rig onto the showgirls before they went onstage. But most of her work really was remarkable not for its tonnage but for the imagination, extravagance and sheer quality of the designs. Klotz is considered one of the best costume designers in Broadway history: She won six Tony Awards and created the wardrobes for landmark shows such as the original productions of “Follies,” “A Little Night Music” and “Kiss of the Spider Woman.” “She was style on the stage,” says Walter 4 T h e L I B R A R Y O F C O N G R E S S G a z ette August 5, 2011 news Fab Five Curator Ray White picks his favorite items from the “I Love Lucy” exhibition: “I Love Lucy” Theme Song The song was composed by Eliot Daniel as a personal favor to producer Jess Oppenheimer, with lyrics by Harold Adamson. The music was played at the beginning and end of every episode, but the lyrics were sung on the show only once, in Episode No. 60, “Lucy’s Last Birthday.” “Most people don’t know that the theme song actually had words,” White says. Desi Arnaz Orchestra Charts The Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz Collection includes scores and parts for some 300 numbers performed by the Desi Arnaz Orchestra from the 1940s until the early 1960s. Included in the exhibit is one of the orchestra’s signature pieces, “Babalu.” Scrawled in pencil on the composition: “Play conga ’til exhausted plus four bars.” “The arrangements are quite wonderful,” White says. “The charts demonstrate how a working orchestra worked.” In fact, the real-life musicians in the orchestra were featured in scenes from the show. Photos of Lucy and Desi Arnaz “They were enormously photogenic,” White says. Featured on a page of one scrapbook are several publicity shots, showcasing a more glamorous Lucy and Desi. According to White, the initial plan for the show was to keep to a limited wardrobe for the cast, so they didn’t appear over the top. However, plots did build in opportunity for them to dress up. Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. / Desilu Too, LLC Born in Jamestown, N.Y., to a pianist mother and a telephone lineman father, she was “a ham” from the very beginning. Ball got her break when she was hired to appear as a Goldwyn Girl in the 1933 film “Roman Scandals.” According to White, she was successful but never a top-drawer star. She was labeled “Queen of the Bs” for her many roles in B films. On Nov. 30, 1940, Lucy and Desi were married at the Byram River Beagle Club in Greenwich, Conn. They had two children, Desi Jr. and Lucie. “They had a famously tempestuous courtship and marriage,” said White. In 1948, Ball was cast in the new CBS radio series “My Favorite Husband.” “It was similar to ‘I Love Lucy’ in that it was a domestic comedy that had two couples,” said White. “From the get-go, Lucy wanted Desi to co-star. She figured working together would cut down his orchestra’s touring schedule and would help them get along a little better.” According to White, the show’s executives didn’t think Arnaz would fit the bill of the typical American husband. Two years later, when CBS executives suggested transferring the show to the then-new medium of television, Ball again wanted Arnaz to co-star but to no avail. So, the two took the show on the road, as it were. “They had this goofy idea to take a vaudeville act on tour,” said White. “People loved it.” CBS executives relented and the rest, as they say, is history – not only in the success and enduring quality of “I Love Lucy” but in setting the standard of how shows were made. “Most television shows were being filmed in the East at that time,” said White. “They would be broadcast live and then produce kinescope copies for the Western time zones. It was like watching TV through a cheesecloth.” Ball, Arnaz and Oppenheimer weren’t willing to leave Southern California, so they proposed to produce the show in Hollywood. In doing so, “I Love Lucy” really became the model for how situation Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. / Desilu Too, LLC Lucy, continued from page 1 “The glamour shots are an intriguing reminder of how Hollywood was in the 1940s,” White says. “However, what’s memorable are the photos of them doing something more ridiculous and less glamorous.” Original Plot Scenario for “I Love Lucy” Included in the exhibition is the original plot scenario for the sitcom, which lays out the premise and point of departure for the show. “Lucy is not trying to get into showbiz every episode, but the fact that she’s smitten informs everything they do,” White says. “Especially with the hindsight of watching episodes through and looking back at that original statement, it’s remarkable that they did what they said they were going to do and stuck with it.” Episode Clips About 13 video clips highlight some of the sitcom’s most memorable episodes, including “Lucy Does a Television Commercial” (in which she promotes the “Vitameatavegamin” tonic); “Job Switching” (Lucy and Ethel get jobs working in a candy factory); and “Lucy is ‘Enceinte’ ” (Lucy and Ricky learn they’re having a baby). Curator Carroll Johnson says some of the show’s most notable music also is highlighted, including “Babalu” and “Cuban Pete.” “The ‘Cuban Pete’ performance is actually the same performance from Lucy’s and Desi’s vaudeville act,” Johnson says. “Same costumes and everything.” – Erin Allen August 5, 2011 5 T h e L I B R A R Y O F C O N G R E S S G a z ette news The exhibit explores the history of the show through the family scrapbooks of Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz. LC’S Digital Future and You! Library of Congress Night at the Ballpark Lucie Arnaz and Desi Arnaz Jr. / Desilu Too, LLC comedies were made – using the threecamera filming technique, a uniform lighting system for the entire set, permanent and realistic sets, and real-time feedback from a live audience. In 1955, “I Love Lucy” achieved a significant television first – it became the first series to be broadcast as reruns, because it was produced on film. “By the fourth or fifth season, Ball and Arnaz’s real marriage was deteriorating, the two had children to contend with and the writers felt they had done everything,” White said of the show’s demise after six seasons. After the final season in 1957, a series of 13 one-hour specials, “The Lucille Ball-Desi Arnaz Show,” ran for the next three years. Ball and Arnaz’s Desilu Productions went on to produce other things like “Star Trek” and “The Dick Van Dyke Show.” “The skill of the writers, actors, directors and everyone speaks to the show’s success,” White said. “They had very high standards for what they would do.” “ ‘I Love Lucy’ truly set the standard for today’s family-oriented television shows,” Johnson said. “That’s why it’s still in rerun today. Almost everyone has a favorite episode.” u Learn more about the Electronic Resources Online Catalog – a valuable research tool that provides expanded access to Library of Congress licensed databases, indexing and abstracting services, and full-text reference resources, including electronic books, serials and staff-recommended free resources.

Kluge Center’s mission at the Library of Congress is “to bring together the world’s best thinkers to stimulate and energize one another, to distill wisdom from the Library’s rich resources, and to interact with policymakers …” And, sometimes, the Kluge Center sparks a serendipitous love story. This storybook romance was set in motion by Mary Lou Reker, special assistant to the director, Office of Scholarly Programs. Reker’s principal responsibility is to oversee the administration of 14 separate fellowship programs and four distinct internship programs at the Kluge Center. In May 2007, Dario Sarlo came to the Kluge Center on a fellowship sponsored by the British Arts and Humanities Research Center. He was a Ph.D. candidate at Goldsmiths, University of London. At the Library, he would conduct research in the Jascha Heifetz Collection in the Music Division for his doctoral dissertation,“Investigating Performer Uniqueness: The Case of Jascha Heifetz.” One day, Sarlo was searching through the collections and found a book by Galina Kopytova titled “Jascha Heifetz in Russia.” The 600-page book examined the childhood of Heifetz, a child prodigy, from 1901 to 1917, a period in the violinist’s life that was generally unknown to the public. The text was written in Russian, however. Sarlo did not speak Russian. The British fellow told Reker about his exciting discovery, lamenting the language problem. Reker, at the time, was in the midst of selecting college interns who could assist the Kluge Center scholars and fellows. “I looked through the applications and saw someone who could play the violin. That caught my eye. Then I read that she spoke Russian. I thought she could help Dario,” Reker said. Like all good matchmakers, Reker found Sarlo the perfect match. Alexandra Wiktorek, who had just com- Andrea Sarlo By Donna Urschel Newlyweds Dario Sarlo and Alexandra Wiktorek Sarlo. pleted a B.A. at Cornell University, arrived at the Kluge Center in early September 2007 for a four-month internship. Sarlo and Wiktorek’s first “date” occurred a few weeks after they started to work together. The date involved a walk down the National Mall one day after work and sitting on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial until sunset. Wiktorek helped Sarlo translate the book “Jascha Heifetz in Russia,” and after the internship, they continued to work together long distance. The couple now has a contract with Indiana University Press for publication of the translation, which is nearing completion. Sarlo received his Ph.D. in historical musicology from the University of London in 2011. He recently worked as a research consultant for a full-length documentary film on Heifetz that had its world premiere in Los Angeles earlier this year. Wiktorek received a master’s degree from Georgetown University. She is studying for her Ph.D. in political science at the University of Pennsylvania. Reker traveled to England to attend their wedding in Horsham, Sussex, on July 12. During the toasts, Reker was asked to tell the story of how the couple met. The groom’s mother, Andrea Sarlo, a professional photographer who took photos at the wedding, said, “It was a wonderful wedding day, and we feel blessed that they had the chance to meet at the Library!” u OIG Would Like to Know Report suspected illegal activities, waste, fraud, abuse and mismanagement in Library administration and operations to the Office of the Inspector General (OIG).

Highsmith Archive, Prints and Photographs Division Library Seeks Volunteers for Book Festival Travel + Leisure takes its appreciation of the Jefferson Building through the roof – or, at least, up to the ceiling. The national travel publication in July named the ceilings of the Great Hall and domed Main Reading Room, taken together, as one of the 14 “coolest” in the world. “Six stained-glass skylights, Italianstyle paintings, paneled carvings and aluminum leaf detailing adorn the Great Hall’s ceiling,” the ceilings’ fans at the magazine note. “In the Reading Room, look up to spot 12 figures representing the 12 countries that artist Edwin Howland Blashfield felt contributed most to American civilization.
