Lauritz Melchior with the FSU Symphony

The scrapbook collection consists of 39 books primarily concerned with the history of the school School of Music at the Florida State College for Women (1909-1947) and Florida State University (1947-present). The contents are mostly newspaper clippings directly related to the school or its faculty, recital and concert programs, and posters. Coverage extends from 1911 up to 2002.

Additionally, four books contain collections of articles on and photgraphs of opera singers and the Metropolitan Opera in New York. These books include material dating from the 1890s to the 1940s.

Some of the books are quite fragile and are thus available for viewing by appointment only. Please contact our Collection Development Librarian, Sara Nodine, to make an appointment.
