Overview

Musicians, conductors, students, and researchers can now have a list of conductor-related holdings and where to find them right at their fingertips. The Directory of Conductors' Archives in American Institutions lists the components and the locations of papers owned and collected by conductors in the United States. Papers found from many places across America are brought together and listed in this single volume. Collections from historical societies, orchestra archives, American libraries, and private collections are all included to help the researcher or music lover locate materials that are difficult to find in standard sources. Author Henry Bloch has carefully compiled the entries in the book, listing all aspects of the collections, including full scores and parts; correspondence, scrapbooks, and business papers; still and moving visual images; and sound recordings. Separated in to two parts, Part I lists conductors alphabetically, citing all the details of their collections, while Part II is organized alphabetically by state and institution. Some entries include a notes section, which lists additional materials or an archive's accessibility to researchers. All pertinent location and contact information, including curators, is also included. Cultural institutions and individuals alike will greatly benefit from this invaluable reference tool.
