Letters and photographs of musicians and actors, 1879-1950.

A collection of letters of Téresa Carreño (1901), C.C. Chaminade (1950), Mischa Elman (signature only), Mary Garden (n.d.), Joseph Joachim (n.d.), F. Kemble (n.d.), F. Liszt (1883), Therèse Malten (1898), Alfredo Piatti (1901, signature only), Luisa Tetrazzini (1924), and Hans von Bülow (1879). Of particular note is the Franz Liszt letter in which he tells of the condition of von Bülow and states "your postcard report of the instigated Jew polemic matches my opinion completely" and sends revised proofs of the recipient (unknown, but not likely Wagner) "Tannheuser" songs. There are also five photographs, signed by F. Chaliapin (1926), Fritz Kreisler, P. Mascagni, Nellie Melba (1895), and Emma Cecilia Thursby.
