Nicolas Nabokov Papers, 1907, 1950-1978.

Correspondence, sheet music, original scores, financial and medical records, clippings, minutes and reports, brochures, and photographs document the life and work of Nicolas Nabokov from 1918 through his death in 1978. The Correspondence Series comprises the bulk of the materials and consists mainly of incoming and copies of outgoing letters. These materials provide a good account of his movements, thoughts, and activities, particularly with music festivals in Israel, Edinburgh, and Berlin, as well as his work for the Congress for Cultural Freedom. Personal relationships with particular individuals are also well represented. Small amounts of correspondence document Nabokov's own family life, health, and musical work, but not in great depth relative to other topics. The Works Series consists almost entirely of Nabokov's original musical scores. Included are manuscripts for Don Quixote, Job, Love's Labour's Lost, Symphonie, Lyrique, Rasputin's End, and Union Pacific. Also included are copies of works by Igor Stravinsky and several large files of clippings and notes related to perfomances of Nabokov's works and other topics of interest to Nabokov.
