As he appears in the text:

“Erick Hawkins, the first male dancer in the Martha Graham Dance Company, was also Martha’s first and only husband. Their relationship became strained when Erick broke away to form his own company. They divorced a few years later, and ever after it pained Martha to watch young couples performing the duets they once danced together.”
