Benno Häupl, the dean among the collectors of (early) ethnomusicological 
sound documents and photographical images, has passed away in Riga, 
Latvia. The widow wishes that the collection should be left intact and 
will consider serious offers from institutions that can guarantee a 
permanent home. There is no detailed inventory. The collection is 
described as follows:
