Toklas, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Valéry, Paul Verlaine, Emile Vuillermoz, and Emile Zola. A number of significant musical scores, letters, conductor's notes, and other manuscripts created by approximately one hundred composers are also found in the Lake Collection. Among these composers are Georges Auric, Hector Berlioz, Ernest Chasson, Claude Debussy, Paul Dukas, Gabriel Fauré, Franz Liszt, Maurice Ravel, Albert Roussel, Camille Saint-Saëns, Erik Satie, Igor Stravinsky, and Giuseppe Verdi.
