Happy New Year!
The Archive of Recorded Sound at Stanford University is pleased to announce the completion of the processing of the Maria Callas Sub-Collection of the Robert Baxter Collection. An illustrated blogpost by Benjamin Bates has been posted on the ARS web site, and the finding aid is available on the Online Archive of California (OAC).
Consisting of 80 boxes (ca. 56 linear feet) of material, the sub-collection provides abundant and detailed documentation of the life and work of Maria Callas, the internationally acclaimed operatic soprano. The materials consist of sound and video recordings, books, periodicals, newspaper clippings, photographs, programs, auction catalogs, exhibition catalogs, correspondence, notes, and research materials.
The sub-collection is part of a larger collection of music materials created by Robert Baxter, an alumnus of Stanford University, who was a performing arts critic for the Courier-Post in Cherry Hill, New Jersey.
