    The American Conservatory at Fontainebleau was originally established in 1919 to improve the quality of United States military bands mobilized in France at the end of World War I. In 1921, the school opened to American civilians, welcoming music students for summer classes in the Louis XV wing of the Château de Fontainebleau. The School of Fine Arts was established in 1923, and architecture has become the focus of its instruction. Still active today, the Conservatory's faculty has featured prominent musicians such as Maurice Ravel, Nadia Boulanger, and Francis Poulenc, and notable alumni include Philip Glass, Donald Grantham, Adolphus Hailstork, and Louise Talma. Though student applications comprise the bulk of the records, there are also publicity materials, other administrative records, and publications documenting the activities of the Fontainebleau Alumni Association.
