Album, 1937-1940.


Album, 1937-1940.

Contains a collection of 51 typewritten letters addressed to Margaret Tolson, who had illustrated the music scores that appear in his writings related to classical music. The letters were personal in nature and discussed a wide array of topics such as books, literature, art, music, travels, politics, culture and society, as well as the business of writing and editing. The tumult in Europe at the time was a concern since Tolson was then living in Paris. Most of the letters were written at his summer residence in Danville, Vermont. This volume also includes a copy of Russell's essay on Brahms Symphony no. 1 in C-minor that was illustrated by Tolson; and number of several poems he had written that were related to music.
