Found: A Plantation Diary that Inspired Faulkner’s Work
Prints and Photographs Division
The Ledgers of History
Aug. 9, noon
Pickford Theater, Madison Building
Two years ago, an important literary discovery was revealed: a diary
written by a wealthy plantation owner
in the mid-1800s that William Faulkner
read and used as a source for his prizewinning novels.
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.

Staff is invited to use the Forum pages for lively and thoughtful
debate relevant to Library issues. However, just as other newspaper editors exercise discretion over which letters to publish and
how to edit them, so do we. In deciding whether or how much
to publish, we consider content (including misstatements of fact,

attacks, and redundancy) and length (the limit is 600 words).
Letters must be signed by the author, whose place of work and
telephone extension should be included so we can verify authorship. Letter writers should understand that when they sign their
letters and release them to us for publication they are relinquishing
privacy. If a letter calls for management response, for example,
an explanation of a policy or actions or clarification of fact, we
will ask for management response.—Ed.

What’s New
A highlight of recent Library acquisitions:
sadors, shoguns and samurai – rich robes, tricorn
hats, masks, fantastic beards – bear notes of
instruction from Klotz and, frequently, samples of
the chosen fabrics.
“There’s nothing like ‘Pacific Overtures.’ It’s in
its own world,” says Betty Auman, a curator in the
Music Division. “There was nothing like it before
and nothing like it after.”
“Pacific Overtures” was nominated for 10 Tonys
but had only a short run. 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

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

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.”

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

A Perfect Academic Match, Then Wedding Bells
The John W. 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.

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
