BOX 384-428 BOX 566 MAPCASE C-Drw 2/3 Subject File, 1923-1990
The Subject File is a composite of printed matter and material on special subjects that Copland kept. The largest and most extensive is the Composition section which consists of published clippings, magazine articles, promotional material, annotated programs and other miscellaneous items relating to performances of his compositions. In May of 1953, Copland was summoned to appear before the House Un-American Activities Committee and respond to a list of alleged "communist" affiliations. The United States Congress section documents Copland's correspondence, notes, statements and evidence during this period. Also, an annotated copy of the Congressional Record of January 16, 1953 in which the affiliations were first recorded and a transcript of the hearing are included.
The Subject File series is divided into Brochures, Bulletins, Catalogues, Clippings, Compositions, Newsletters, Notes, Opera Ideas, Programs, Promotional Materials, Recording, Tribute and Multiple Composition, United States Congress, and White House. Includes correspondence, clippings, programs, promotional material and other printed matter. Arranged alphabetically by subject; then Brochures, Bulletins, Catalogues, Compositions, Opera Ideas, Recording, Tribute and Multiple Composition, and United States Congress arranged alphabetically by title or subject; and Clippings, Newsletters, Notes, Programs and Promotional Materials arranged chronologically.
