BOX 468-494 BOX 496-514 MAPCASE C-Drw 2/4-6 Photographs, 1889-1985
The Photographs series contain approximately 12,000 images and date from c. 1889-1985. The largest section is the portraits of Copland alone, both formal and informal, professional and amateur. Noteworthy subjects include many rarely-seen early portraits of Aaron Copland and the majority of the photographs reproduced in Copland's two volume autobiography, "Copland, 1900-1943" (Volume I) and "Copland Since 1943" (Volume II). Photographs from these books are identified with a Roman numeral I or II, designating the volume in which it was reproduced, followed by an Arabic numeral designating the page on which the photograph is found.
A large portion of the photo images were taken by Copland's life-long friend, the professional photographer, Victor Kraft (1915-76). Among the images produced by Victor Kraft are luminaries of the American music scene from the first half of the twentieth century, including Leonard Bernstein, Marc Blitzstein, Paul Bowles, David Diamond, Lukas Foss, Serge Koussevitzky, Walter Piston and the Tanglewood Music Festival during the 1940s. In fact, a significant amount of items correspond or overlap between this series and the Victor Kraft Materials series. Illustrious photographers represented include Margaret Bourke-White, Irving Penn, Gordon Parks and Carl Van Vechten, among others. If photographic credits are not given, the photographer is, as yet, unidentified. See the Explanation of Code System for Photographs at the end of the series.
