Jimmy Clossin - card, biography, flyer, letter, news story

Description

Jimmy Clossin was an influential Texas caller who unfortunately never recorded commercially. (This Square Dance History Site would dearly love to post clips from live recordings—please contact us if you know of any.) Shown here are several items:
     • his business card
     • a letter in which he outlines his terms to call for a club
     • a 1950 flier announcing an evening of squares
     • promotional biography
     • photograph and brief text about a 1952 dance event in Birmingham, Alabama
     • square dance magazine story and photographs (1957) describing his work with school children in Florida

He was co-author (with Carl Hertzog) of West Texas Cowboy Square Dances (1948) and The American Cowboy Square Dance Book (1952). He received the CALLERLAB Milestone award in 1976.
