Summary
The Music Division collection consists primarily of image documentation of the New York City Opera from its inception in 1944 through 1980, as well as City Opera related images (staff, functions, etc.). There are also undated photographs of many rehearsals and some performances at Lewisohn Stadium, a small collection of photographs of composers in action, chiefly in the 1940's, and some images of other musical activity in New York City. The Music Division acquired the collection in two parts; an earlier set of photographs was added to the General Iconography and Opera Files. This later collection is separate, although it includes the negatives for many photographs from the earlier set. Wherever possible, concordance has been provided by the finding aid.
