The Harrison Price Company (HPC) prepared and submitted a Louis B. Mayer Foundation grant application package on behalf of the Los Angeles Academy of Vocal Arts. The grant requested $7500 to fund a planning and feasibility study, which would guide the launch and formation of the then nascent organization. Topics to be covered in the feasibility study would include: the legal structure, non-profit incorporation, trustee selection, statement of purpose and philosophy, curriculum, instruction plans, space requirements, site alternatives, proposed operating budget, including revenues, expenses, and development needs. The grant application package includes a letter from Harrison Price to Mr. Daniel Selznick of the Louis B. Mayer Foundation describing the grant request as well as the following supporting materials: Seth Riggs Vocal Therapy and Technique (SRVTT): students’ accomplishments and awards; SRVTT stage screen and television personalities; SRVTT musical artists and groups; SRVTT Broadway shows; SRVTT lectures and additional information; SRVTT speech and singing normal and post-operative; and Seth Riggs’ biography.
