BOX 467C Scrapbooks
The series Scrapbooks is represented by four scrapbooks. Three of the four scrapbooks focus on specific undertakings by Copland -- the Copland-Sessions Concerts from 1924 to 1931, the Yaddo Festivals from 1932-33, and the 1978 Australian tour for which he conducted and lectured. The other scrapbook represents the beginnings of Copland's clipping file from 1924 to 1942.
Four volumes that include articles, clippings, photographs, programs and other memorabilia. Arranged chronologically.
Because of their fragile condition, all but the Australian tour scrapbook have been preserved on microfilm (Microfilm 93/20002 Mus); the original of these three volumes will not be served to the public.
