BOX 8-11 Correspondence, 1901-1965
Within this series are letters, picture postcards, telegrams, and various personal notes both to and from Geraldine Farrar reflecting both her private and public life. Among the more insightful and interesting materials is Farrar's life-long correspondence with Germany's Crown Prince Wilhelm (1882-1951) and Crown Princess Cecilie. At Farrar's request, these letters, dating as early as 1901, remained sealed until 1979, along with other documents sent to Farrar by the German royal family. There is also a considerable amount of correspondence from the American producer David Belasco (1853-1931), Farrar's voice coach Lilli Lehmann (1848-1929), and close friends Daisy Humphries and Ruth A. Businger (1893-1965). Among the notable correspondents are Teresa Carreño, Enrico Caruso, Gustave Charpentier, Cecil B. DeMille, Paul Dukas, Henry T. Finck, Henry Hadley, Reynaldo Hahn, Engelbert Humperdinck, Rockwell Kent, Fritz Kreisler, Jules Massenet, Lily Pons, Giacomo Puccini, Sergei Rachmaninoff and Arturo Toscanini.
