Maynor, Dorothy (1910 – 96)
African – American operatic soprano. Dedicated and signed image: a 10″x12.5″ color litho print, RCA Victor publicity portrait. Bears an impressive dedication and signature, accomplished with great flourish. “To Donald Wiegand with all best wishes, sincerely yours, Dorothy Maynor”. Other than a small tear at the top of the print (well away from the image) the signed print is in very good condition. Accompanied by a vintage magazine publicity sheet on Maynor. Maynor is uncommon in material of this quality. Maynor studied at the Hampton Institute and Westminster Choir School; privately studied with William Klamroth and John Alan Houghton. Founder of the Harlem School of the Arts.
