Carrie Mayer papers, 1920-1948.
Summary
The Carrie Mayer papers document the early career of Carrie Mina Mayer, a singer and pianist active in the late 1920s and 1930s. The collection is comprised mostly of programs and publicity materials, and a small number of clippings and letters. The programs document some of Carrie Mayer's concerts, as well as other musical performances in Pittsburgh. The collection also contains information about two of Carrie Mayer's teachers, Ernestine Schumann-Heink and Harvey B. Gaul, and includes a list of Gaul's published compositions, compiled by his wife in 1947 as a special issue of the News Sheet, the official publication of the Pennsylvania Federation of Music Clubs. The collection provides an interesting, if fragmentary, picture of the concert scene in Pittsburgh between 1923-1938.
