AC Johnston and The mystery of Zada Levee    Nov 27, '10 9:46 PM

"Zada Levee? Does anyone know who she actually is or if this is a real name? Could not find anything on it or close to it anywhere. Thought perhaps Marjorie Levoe? An ID will change the zr chain pics in here as well." (c) Jane


Levee = Levy.
( for example: Pauline Marion Goddard Levee / Levy)

Ballet dancer... Levy… the significant similarity with an unnamed dancer of the Pavley-Oukrainsky company.
I suspect Ruth Levy.

1.
“Ruth Levy, who performed as a dancer with the Pavley/Oukrainsky Ballet Company, received a masters degree in photography at the Art Institute of Chicago in 1972. This collection includes her negatives, proof sheets, and glossy prints of dancers in several companies, including the Alvin Ailey City Center Dance Theater, the American Ballet Theatre, the Dance Theatre of Harlem, the Joffrey Ballet, the New York City Ballet, and the Ruth Page Chicago Ballet among others. Some of these photographs were exhibited at the Chicago Public Library in 1974.”

2.
Perhaps, her stage name was Zada. Anastasia “Zuleika” Reilly. Ruth “Zada” Levy.

3.
Perhaps, she posed as Andromeda or for some Johnston’s reminiscences on Ingre?
