BOX 1-37Music
The first 36 boxes contain Robert Di Domenica’s musical compositions, arranged alphabetically by title. There is material relating to Ellen Bender’s opera, Rappaccini’s Daughter for which Di Domenica wrote the libretto. There is also a small amount of printed music, which evidently belonged to Leona Knopf Di Domenica.
