Dance team of (Don) Loper & (Maxine) Barrat

For a biography of Maxine Barrat, I am seeking any information about her dance career w/ Don Loper (late 1930s-mid-'40s), and after they split up, when she went into TV and hosted "And Everything Nice" (1949) that aired on the DuMont Television network at its flagship station, then WABD (channel 5), in NYC.
If anyone has any recollections and/or memorabilia related to her career/life, I would be very happy to hear from you!
