Joseph V. Nash 
      American dancer, historian, and archivist (b. Oct. 5, 1919, New York, N.Y.—d. April 13, 2005, New York City), performed in stage musicals, danced with the early notable figures in modern dance, and for 25 years was involved with the Christian liturgical dance known as praise dancing. Throughout his career he amassed a huge collection of African American modern dance memorabilia, and it was feared that he had no immediate survivors and that the priceless material he had not already donated to institutions would be broken up and auctioned. Relatives were found, however, and it was hoped that his remaining archive collection would remain intact and eventually find a home where cultural historians could have access to it.
