    Jessye Norman (1945-2019) was an internationally recognized American soprano. An alumna of Howard University and the University of Michigan, Norman rose to fame after winning the 1968 ARD International Competition in Munich. She specialized in repertoire by late Romantic composers, garnering critical praise for her roles in Wagnerian operas as well as recitals featuring traditional African American spirituals and songs by Francis Poulenc, Gustav Mahler, Hall Johnson, and Richard Strauss. The Jessye Norman Papers contain correspondence from her managers and assistants, business papers, awards, annotated music, photographs, interviews, and clippings that document her career and philanthropic activities.
