Jacob Druckman papers 1928-1999

The Jacob Druckman Collection documents the life and career of Jacob Druckman (1928-1996), a Pulitzer-prize winning composer, educator, and organizer of the New York Philharmonic's Horizons series of new music concerts. The collection, assembled by Druckman over the course of his lifetime, with additional material inserted posthumously by his family, includes musical scores, correspondence, clippings, programs, and iconography; the collection's sound recordings are housed in the Rodgers and Hammerstein Archive of Recorded Sound and have been cataloged as a separate component. The New York Public Library acquired the Jacob Druckman Collection in December 1999. The music, papers, and iconography in the Jacob Druckman Collection represent the professional and personal interests of their namesake. The collection accrued naturally through Druckman's activities as composer, conductor, teacher, and concert organizer, and it is augmented by documents related to the organizations that he served as a board member, officer, or adjudicator. There is also a small amount of material concerning the work of Druckman's wife, the dance scholar Muriel Topaz. The bulk of the collection falls between 1949 and 1996, the period from Druckman's college graduation to his death.
