Title
Lajos Szendi autograph album circa 1911-1932.
Summary
The Lajos Szendi autograph album contains primarily autograph signatures of musicians. Some of the autographs have been written directly onto the leaves of the album, while others have been pasted in from scraps of paper, visiting cards, and other items. The book also contains several loose photographic postcards, programs, handbills, and newspaper clippings, most of which are signed and have been inserted between the leaves. Identifiable among the signers are: the opera singer, Mme. Charles Cahier, violinist, Jascha Heifetz, conductor, Ferdinand Löwe, composers Giacomo Puccini and Richard Strauss, and American suffragist, Carrie Chapman Catt. In addition to the famous names represented, the album contains numerous autographs belonging to Hungarian musicians or other individuals not as well known outside of Hungary.
