The primary goal of the Alla Nazimova Society is to serve as a nexus for the growing community of fans, admirers, scholars and historians who are interested in the life and career of Alla Nazimova.
An additional important objective is to identify and locate artifacts, memorabilia, photographs and papers related to Nazimova’s artistry and life. In addition to cataloging these assets, when possible and appropriate we will endeavor to make them available to film historians and researchers.
We are also interested in artifacts and memorabilia related to Nazimova’s homes, particularly including the Garden of Alla/h.
When possible and necessary, we will acquire artifacts that appear to be at risk in order to assure their preservation and safekeeping.
The Society also seeks to establish relationships with museums, libraries and other institutions in order to facilitate exhibits featuring Nazimova’s life and artistry.
Relatedly, the Society is also interested in promoting the screening of Nazimova’s movies in theatres, on television and other media.
Through seminars, readings and other events, the Society intends to assure Nazimova’s place in film and theatre history by educating the public about the important role she played on Broadway and in Hollywood in the early years of the 20th century.
