Biography/History

Dr. Irvin Stein was born in North Carolina in 1906 and died in Philadelphia on February 3, 2000. At age fifteen, Dr. Stein enrolled in the University of North Carolina and went on to medical school at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia. Stein completed his intern and resident training at Johns Hopkins University Medical Center and at the University of Pennsylvania. He then went on to work as a surgeon at the Philadelphia General Hospital and to teach orthopedic surgery at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School. In addition, Stein served on the board of the Philadelphia Orchestra and appears to have developed a friendship with Eugene Ormandy, the conductor of the Orchestra. In 1971, Stein operated on Ormandy, correcting a 55 year-old injury during a famously successful hip surgery. An article in the Philadelphia Inquirer quotes Ormandy, "Dr. Stein has become my dearest friend--like a younger brother," (October 12, 1971).

Eugene Ormandy was born on November 8, 1899 in Hungary and died in Philadelphia on March 12, 1985. He became internationally famous for his 44-year role as the conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Under his leadership, the Philadelphia Orchestra received three gold records and won two Grammy Awards. At age five, Ormandy began studying violin at the Royal National Hungarian Academy of Music, giving his first concerts at age seven and graduating with a master’s degree at age fourteen. He moved to America in 1921 and became a violinist at the Capitol Theatre in New York City. In 1931, Ormandy served as a substitute conductor for the Philadelphia Orchestra which ultimately led to his first major appointment as a conductor in Minneapolis. In 1936, Ormandy began his work with the Philadelphia Orchestra as associate conductor under Leopold Stokowski. After two years, he became the lead conductor and remained so until his retirement in 1980.

Biography/History

Eugene Ormandy (1899-1985), was a violinist and conductor, best known for his 44-year association with the Philadelphia Orchestra.

Ormandy was born Jenö Blau in Budapest, Hungary to Rosalie and Benjamin Blau. He was a musical prodigy; beginning his violin studies at the age of five at the Royal Hungarian Academy of Music, he had his first concert at 7, and graduated with a master’s degree at the age of fourteen. His first musical engagement upon arriving in the United States in 1921 was as a violinist at the Capitol Theatre in New York. The orchestra played concerts and provided live musical accompaniment for silent movies. Ormandy quickly became concertmaster and eventually conducted the group.

Ormandy first conducted the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1931 when Arturo Toscanini, a famous Italian conductor, fell ill and a last-minute replacement was needed. This opportunity led to Ormandy’s first major appointment as the conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra (now Minnesota Orchestra), where he served until 1936. Ormandy joined the Philadelphia Orchestra as associate conductor under Leopold Stokowski and became music director in 1938. He served as lead conductor until his retirement in 1980 when he was appointed conductor laureate. Ormandy’s conducting style was known to produce a particular "Philadelphia Sound" and he was alternately praised and denounced for it by critics. Under Ormandy’s direction, the Philadelphia Orchestra often performed in other American cities and internationally in locations such as Finland, Latin America, and China. Though he retired in 1980, Ormandy occasionally appeared as a guest conductor for the Philadelphia and other orchestras. His last concert was in 1984 at Carnegie Hall, conducting the Philadelphia Orchestra. He died in 1985.

For a more complete biographical note, please see Eugene Ormandy papers, 1921-1991, Ms. Coll. 91.

Biography/History

Eugene Ormandy, born in Budapest in 1899, grew up Jenö Blau, first son of Benjamin Blau, who began training his son on the violin at an early age. A musical prodigy with perfect pitch, he studied as a child at the Royal Academy of Music under the tutelage of his namesake, Jenö Hubay. By the age of 17 Ormandy had not only graduated (three years prior) but was teaching at this same academy, and soon thereafter he began touring Europe as a soloist. In 1920, after a concert in Vienna, two American entrepreneurs, who claimed to be concert agents, persuaded Ormandy to come and concertize in America, where they promised to procure for him 300 performing venues and to pay him a total of $30,000 in fees. Ormandy accepted the offer, anxious to go to the United States, where opportunities for musicians seemed to abound.

Upon his arrival in New York in December, 1921, however, the promised contract evaporated. In need of money, Ormandy found a job with the orchestra of the Capitol Theater, a movie house that featured musical concerts as well as silent movies with live musical accompaniment. Ormandy rose in the ranks quickly, becoming concertmaster within a week of taking the job. By 1926, having occasionally substituted for the conductor Erno Rapee, Ormandy had become the Capitol Orchestra's associate music director. In that capacity he was eventually discovered by the manager, Arthur Judson, who, taking the young conductor into his stable of performers, began to employ him in the Dutch Master Hour and other radio programs. Judson also began booking important live performances for him. In 1929 Ormandy appeared at the Lewisohn Stadium in New York, conducting the New York Philharmonic-Symphony, and in 1930 he made his conductorial debut in Philadelphia, where he conducted the city's orchestra at the Robin Hood Dell. Over the next year several subsequent Philadelphia appearances included a successful two week guest engagement substituting for Arturo Toscanini, who had been suddenly taken ill at the start of the fall season. As a result, the Philadelphia Orchestra's administrators, who had begun thinking about a successor to Leopold Stokowski, invited Ormandy back as guest conductor many more times over the next few years.

Ormandy had, in the meantime, become engaged by the Minneapolis Symphony as its conductor. From 1931 to 1936 Ormandy did what he could to improve the orchestra and to bring it into more national prominence. Ormandy, with the help of Judson, obtained a recording contract with RCA Victor, and soon this Midwestern orchestra was the most recorded orchestra in the country. Though neither Ormandy nor the players received extra compensation for their recordings, the orchestra and perhaps particularly Ormandy profited from the increased publicity produced by their popular recordings. Ormandy and the Minneapolis Symphony were the first in the United States to record Mahler's Symphony No. 4, Rachmaninoff's No. 2, and Sibelius' No. 1.

When Ormandy's five-year contract with Minneapolis ended, the Philadelphia Orchestra invited him to become its co-conductor, an invitation Ormandy readily accepted. For the next four years Ormandy shared the podium with Leopold Stokowski, an arrangement that apparently went smoothly enough, even after Ormandy was made music director in 1938. When Stokowski finally left, at the end of the 1940-1941 season, Ormandy made no big adjustments in programming or in the management of the Orchestra.

But these years, however successful professionally, were decades of personal challenge and even upheaval for the maestro. He had married professional harpist Stephanie Goldner in 1922, who gave up a position with the New York Philharmonic in 1931 to join her husband in the Midwest. The couple twice had babies that subsequently died of RH complications. Furthermore, with the advent of World War II and then, later, the Soviet occupation, Ormandy expended no small effort and money assisting family, friends, and friends of friends out of Europe, many of whom he put up at his own home (at one time the Ormandy's lived in a house in Wynnewood that they called "Journey's End," where they accommodated some of the emigrés). Among those he helped were members of his wife's own family, emigrating from Austria. Yet despite all the couple had been through together in these decades, or perhaps because of it, Ormandy and his wife Stephanie divorced in 1947. In 1950 he married Margaret (Gretel) Frances Hitsch.

While the new Mrs. Ormandy devoted herself to her husband, he devoted himself to the Orchestra. This is not to say that he did not care about the people in his life. Indeed he dedicated himself to the welfare of his brother, Martin, whom he assisted financially and professionally (Ormandy was estranged from his other brother Laszlo). He kept in touch with family back in Hungary, telephoning and sending money whenever he could, and he also continued to assist his first wife and her family. In 1952 Mrs. Ormandy and he also unofficially "adopted" a young Austrian woman from Czechoslovakia named Renata Huebscher (later Harrison); the Ormandys helped put her through Bryn Mawr College and remained close to her after she married. Thus in many respects, Ormandy's familial relationships seem to have been fairly simply defined; though his work generally came first, he used his earnings and his position to help anyone for whom he cared. The only return he apparently expected was loyalty. And he had need for family loyalty and affection during two difficult occasions in the 1960s. The first one involved an automobile accident in which both Ormandy and his wife were terribly injured, and from which it took them months to recover. The second incident was the death of Stephanie Ormandy in 1962 from cancer. In these instances, family and friends, including members of his first wife's family, rallied to lend their support.

In contrast with these relationships, his relationship to the Orchestra, his other "family," was more complex. He liked to view himself as a kind of father or uncle to the Orchestra members, to whom he was often quite loyal, personally. He helped individuals through illness and personal problems, assisted players with obtaining loans, raises or bonuses from management, and threw the Orchestra lavish parties once a year. In general, however, he aligned himself with the Orchestra Association or Board when it came to general employment policy; he, for instance, asked all the Orchestra members to go back to work during the strike of 1966 and refused otherwise to get involved. Many say that in this instance and others, Ormandy could not, in any case, have had much influence with the Board and therefore had no choice but to take a neutral, middle ground. Yet one can easily believe--and there is evidence that some players did--that because for Ormandy work and the business of orchestra management were so important, he would not have sided with players even if he had had more ability to affect Board policies. Likewise there are those who, in remembering Ormandy, have described him as a kind of factory foreman, particularly with regard to the production and sales of orchestra recordings. Certainly it can be said that he put the Orchestra's financial well-being and reputation above all other considerations, a priority that sometimes brought him into conflict with the instrumentalists.

Ormandy was known for his business acumen, practicality, and efficiency, traits perhaps developed in his early days as movie-house maestro and radio performer. In the 44 years of his Philadelphia tenure, he and the Orchestra made many recordings with RCA (1936-1943, 1968-1985) and with Columbia Records (1944 and 1968), a great number of which sold quite well. Ormandy readily accommodated these companies' technical and economic needs, helping to make recordings in "record" time, and going along with whatever plans they had for producing a best-seller, however, gimmicky. The Orchestra also frequently went touring, in part to sell records, in part just for the added exposure, and many of their tours were historically quite significant. For instance, in making the 1949 tour to Great Britain, the Philadelphia Orchestra was the first American orchestra to play overseas since before the war. Other important tours included those to Finland in 1955 (when they met with Jean Sibelius), to Latin America (1966), to Japan (1967), and, perhaps most famously, to China (1973). While increasing the ranks of the Orchestra's overseas listeners, Ormandy also labored to obtain new audiences through the media of radio and television. In fact, the Philadelphia Orchestra was the first orchestra to appear in a televised broadcast, when on March 20, 1948, the CBS television network aired a live performance. In these and other areas Ormandy's efforts to keep the Orchestra in the public eye paid off, making the Philadelphia Orchestra one of the best known of the American orchestras.

Ormandy made such efforts not simply for profits, however, but also for the sake of music and the Orchestra's music-making capability. Keeping the Orchestra financially healthy enabled Ormandy to hire topnotch, even well-known players for the Orchestra and made possible the Orchestra Association's practice (which Ormandy established) of lending money to players, interest free, for the purchase of high quality instruments. And though he had a reputation for performing only conservative, crowd-pleasing (i.e., money-making) programs, the record shows something different. Indeed, Ormandy frequently played 20th-century composers and premiered works by such American composers as Samuel Barber, Aaron Copland, Walter Piston, and Richard Yardumian, to name a few. In addition to helping composers by performing their works, Ormandy frequently aided young performing artists. He ran conductors' workshops in the 1950s, worked directly with the Curtis Institute of Music student orchestra in the 1960s and 1970s while arranging to have other professional conductors do the same, and generally promoted any individual musician that he felt had promise. In fact, in 1972 Ormandy brought the then little known Riccardo Muti to Philadelphia to make his American debut; one of many young artists Ormandy assisted, Muti, of course, was to become the maestro's own successor.

Six years later Ormandy announced that he would retire at the end of the 1979-1980 season. By some accounts he had become somewhat sharper or more bitter in these years, and a shift in feelings towards his work seemed evidenced by such statements as the following, written in a letter to his friend Earl Vincent Moore: "If we could steal a day between concerts we would fly down to see all of you but concert managers nowadays are cold blooded business men who have to fill in every day and the old horse has to keep on plugging" (December 2, 1976). There is some evidence that Ormandy had been running up against an increasingly uncooperative management, but he must also have been discouraged by growing friction between himself and Orchestra members hoping for his retirement. At the same time the late 1970s saw a decrease of recording sessions with RCA, which, while it continued to make records with the Orchestra and its guest conductors, produced fewer new recordings with the aging maestro and tended instead to release previous Ormandy recordings from its archives, to his disappointment. Most of all, Ormandy was impeded by his own growing frailty. He had hip replacement surgery in 1970, which had sufficiently relieved the pain under which he had been operating to enable him to walk and to continue his work but did not eradicate that pain. There were other problems as well, such as an impairment of his vision, his hearing, and his once legendary memory. Yet Ormandy went on conducting even after his official 1980 retirement. He frequently appeared with the Philadelphia Orchestra as conductor laureate and guest conducted all over the U.S. and in Europe, recreating the famed "Philadelphia Sound" wherever he went. Ormandy gave his final concert at Carnegie Hall on January 10, 1984. Despite the onset during intermission of an illness that would put an end to his public appearances, he completed the concert leading the Orchestra in a faultless performance of Béla Bártok's Concerto for Orchestra, which he conducted from memory.

Ormandy's last ten to fifteen years were filled with honors, awards, and achievements. In 1970 he received the Presidential Medal of Freedom; in 1973 he made the historic trip to China with the Orchestra; he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth during a celebration of America's bicentennial; and he received the Golden Baton Award in 1979, the same year that both he and the Philadelphia Orchestra commemorated their 80th birthdays. The City of Philadelphia awarded him its Medal of Freedom in 1980, and he received Kennedy Center Honors in 1982. His life was one filled with such distinctions, and whatever the value of his accomplishment, there can be no denial that he worked hard for these honors. For 44 years he made the Philadelphia Orchestra his life, and he had little or no outside activities or pastimes. He had friendships, but many of his friends were musicians with whom he worked in some capacity. Socializing with non-musician friends often took the form of their driving Ormandy to a concert or sharing a box with his wife. Mrs. Ormandy herself, even in that most private and personal of relationships, had in a sense become a business partner to her husband. Her own early comments on this matter are telling: upon marriage she thought she might teach her new husband "how to play," but instead, she said, "he taught me how to work" ( Newsweek, March 2, 1953, p.55). It is no exaggeration to say work was truly his life. Thus there is something quite fitting ab out the fact that so few biographic details are known about Ormandy outside of the professional arena, for he clearly made no distinctions between the personal and professional aspects of his existence.

In addition, Boyer served on the board of directors for the Academy of Music and the Philadelphia Orchestra; was a patron, benefactor and trustee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art; and served on the board of managers of the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania where she chaired the hospital’s student nurses committee and was president of the Women’s Board. She was also a trustee for the National Foundation for Graduate Nursing Education, and served on the President’s Defense Advisory Committee on Women in the Services. In 1987, the University Museum created a medal in her honor, called the Marian Angell Godfrey Boyer medal, to "honor distinguished service by a museum supporter to the institution."

Leopold Anthony Stokowski was born in London on April 18, 1882 and died in New Hampshire on September 13, 1977. The conductor was English by birth, but was of Polish and Irish descent, a fact that he capitalized upon during his career. In 1896, when he was just thirteen years old, he enrolled in the Royal College of Music. He later earned a Bachelor of Music degree from the Queens College, Oxford in 1903. He became the lead conductor of the Cincinnati City Orchestra in 1909 and of the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1912. He remained the lead conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra until his contract ended in 1940. He then formed the All-American Youth Orchestra and composed the music for the film Fantasia in 1940. He was married to the pianist, Olga Samaroff from 1911 to 1923; the Johnson & Johnson heiress, Evangeline Love Brewster Johnson from 1926 to 1937; and to the heiress and actress, Gloria Vanderbilt, from 1945 to 1955.

Scope and Contents

This collection documents Dr. Irvin Stein's relationship with Eugene Ormandy, the conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, and Stein's efforts to memorialize Ormandy's accomplishments following his death through the Eugene Ormandy Memorial of the University of Pennsylvania Libraries. In this collection, researchers will find articles and press releases relating to Eugene Ormandy, dating from 1953 to 1988. The majority of articles, however, date to 1971, when Dr. Stein operated on Ormandy's hip, "creating a new joint" and correcting an injury that occurred when Ormandy was playing soccer in Hungary around 1916 and which left Ormandy limping for more than 55 years. Also relating to this surgery is memorabilia from the Lily Ball (benefiting the Easter Seal Society) at which Ormandy was awarded "The Gallantry Award" and Dr. Stein was awarded "The Rehabilitation Physician of the Year Award." Other articles and press releases document the Philadelphia Orchestra following Ormandy's death.

There is a small amount of correspondence between Ormandy and Stein, the bulk relating to Stein's request, on behalf of the board of the Philadelphia Orchestra, that Ormandy conduct a concert of the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra. Ormandy's refusal is documented in several drafts and two personal letters of explanation to Stein. There are also two letters from Ormandy's wife, Gretel, to Stein after Ormandy's death.

Finally, researchers will find documentation of the efforts made to create the Eugene Ormandy Memorial of the University of Pennsylvania Libraries. Stein served on the founding committee and the collection includes a newspaper article regarding the gift of Ormandy's archival material at Penn in 1988 as well as correspondence relating to meetings, contributions, and benefit concerts and a few programs for the benefit concerts.

Scope and Contents

The Eugene Ormandy family home movies were shot between 1932 and 1947 by conductor Eugene Ormandy on his own hand-held camera and by others when Ormandy appears in the films. Film 44, dated 1947, was shot by Ormandy's brother-in-law Herman Goldner, who received the camera, films and a projector after Eugene and Steffy Ormandy divorced. In 1982, after Herman Goldner died, the camera, films and projector came to Ormandy's niece Doris Gundert Balant. The films remained in a closet in her home in Maine for 30 years until they were donated to the University of Pennsylvania.

During the time period represented in the films, Eugene Ormandy served as the conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra (1931-1936) and as associate conductor (1936-1938) and music director (1938-1980) of the Philadelphia Orchestra. The content of the films includes scenes of Ormandy conducting the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the New York Philharmonic. Also included are arrivals and departures at train stations along with musicians from his two resident orchestras. Otherwise, the content of the films is primarily scenes of leisure. The locales include his home in Minneapolis, European cities such as London, Vienna, and Stockholm, and several vacations in the Austrian alps, as well as vacations in Florida, Bermuda, and New Hampshire. There are also several scenes aboard passenger ships on his way to or from Europe. The people included in his films are primarily his first wife, Stephanie, as well as her mother, sisters and brother, her sisters' spouses and children, and friends of the family, many of them musicians. Of note, the films include the only known video of Ormandy conducting the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra; views of the German city of Nuremberg before its bombing in WWII; and scenes of construction of the 1933 to 1934 "Century of Progress" Exposition in Chicago, IL.

It is also notable that during this time period, and represented by these films, Eugene Ormandy took great efforts to bring wife Steffy's Jewish relatives to the United States and safely out of reach of the Nazis. Chronologically, the Goldner family made its way to the United States in the following order: December 1936: Gertrude "Trudy" Goldner Gundert and Doris Gundert (Balant) left Stuttgart for Vienna (the Gunderts divorced and Dr. Hermann Gundert never came to the United States). Summer 1937: the Ormandys rented a house in Strobl, Austria. Present were Emma "Alte" Adler Goldner, Gertrude "Trudy" Goldner Gundert, Doris Gundert (Balant), Stephen "Steve" Gundert, Eugene and Stephanie "Steffy" Goldner Ormandy, and Anna "Hanni" Elbogen (Forester). According to Doris Gundert Balant "This was a kind of staging period, waiting to get the necessary emigration papers." September 1937: Stephanie "Steffy" Goldner Ormandy, Gertrude "Trudy" Goldner Gundert, Doris and Stephen "Steve" Gundert sail from Cherbourg, France to New York, NY, on the S.S. Queen Mary (Eugene Ormandy returned later the same month to the United States). May 1938: Emma "Alte" Adler Goldner and Anna "Hanni" Elbogen (Forester) sail from Rotterdam, Holland to New York, NY, on the S.S.  Volendam. July 1938: Mariedi Elbogen (Anders) and Ernst Aufricht (Anders) with their son Thomas arrive in New York, NY on the S.S.  Volendam from Rotterdam. March 1939: Herman Goldner sails from Southampton, England to New York, NY, on the S.S.  Veendam, after what Doris Gundert Balant calls "a long, anxious wait in Italy for papers." November 1939: Franz "Franzl" Elbogen and Julia "Mady" Goldner Elbogen finally sail on the S.S.  Saturnia from Naples, Italy to New York, NY. According to Doris Gundert, "by that time emigration was almost impossible. Mady had been waiting for Franzl to get permission to leave, instead of which he ended up in Dachau for six months. He was released from there when Ormandy enlisted the help of William C. Bullitt, U.S. Ambassador to France, through Bullitt’s brother, Orville H. Bullitt (a friend and supporter of the Philadelphia Orchestra)."

Scope and Contents

This is a collection of oral history interviews conducted with Eugene Ormandy and others connected to him and to the Philadelphia Orchestra during his tenure there. The interviews were conducted between 1969 and 1997 (bulk: 1990-1993) and interviewees include Philadelphia Orchestra musicians, administrative staff, and board members, as well as composers, conductors, critics, music producers, and other professional colleagues, in addition to family and friends.

These interviews (a total of 90 interviews with 87 individuals, some of whom were interviewed together) were conducted by Sharon Eisenhour, John Bewley, Herbert Kupfeberg, Morris Henken, George Diehl, and Marjorie Hassen. The oral histories cover a wide range of topics including the relationships between musicians, composers, conductors, trustees, etc.; the personal histories and experiences of individuals both at the Philadelphia Orchestra and elsewhere; Ormandy's personal and professional characteristics; Ormandy’s impact on the Philadelphia Orchestra and the "Philadelphia Sound;" the transitions in leadership from Leopold Stokowski to Ormandy and from Ormandy to Riccardo Muti; and opinions and anecdotes about other prominent people in the music world. The audio cassettes of the interviews are currently restricted, but all recordings have been transcribed and most transcripts are available for access. Researchers interested in the audio should contact the Kislak Center for more information.

Scope and Contents

This collection of photographs documents the career and life of Eugene Ormandy from the early 1880s to the early 1990s, with the bulk of the photographs dating from the 1940s to the 1970s. Most prints are black-and-white; some are color. There are numerous photographs of Eugene Ormandy conducting, in particular at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia. This collection also documents his tours with the Philadelphia Orchestra in Europe, the People's Republic of China, Japan, and Latin America. In addition, researchers will find many photographs of Eugene Ormandy with other musicians and supporters of the Philadelphia Orchestra. In order to find photographs of specific individuals, researchers are encouraged to perform key work searches (all individuals are entered first name, last name).

The collection is intellectually arranged in chronological order. Physically, volumes 1-56 are arranged chronologically; boxes 57-63 contain duplicates of images in volumes 1-56; box 64 contains a photograph album from National Music Camp, Interlocken, Michigan, dating from August 26 to 29, 1996; box 65 contains a photograph album from the dedication of the Eugene Ormandy Listening Center, University of Pennsylvania Library on November 15, 1989; box 66 contains a photograph album given November 18, 1956, from Columbia Records Public Relations Department; boxes 67-71 comprise oversize photographs arranged chronologically; box 72 contains duplicates of images in boxes 67-71; boxes 73-75 house negatives; and box 76 contains glass slides.

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of sound recordings on sound reels, audio cassettes, cds, and long playing records. It is believed that the majority document Stokowski's conducting career from 1917 to 1977 and that very few were professional recordings. There are some recordings that specifically list another conductor; in particular, Fritz Reiner conducting the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Ernst Marzendorfer conducting the Vienna Chamber Orchestra. All description is based upon existing labels and slips of papers which were found with the recordings, the contents of which are not always clear. It is important for researchers to understand that sound recordings were not listened to prior to arrangement and description.

The collection is arranged in five series: I. Reel to reel sound recordings, II. Cassettes, III. CDs, IV. Records, and V. Index cards to tape collection. The first four series are all arranged alphabetically by orchestra, and then chronologically within each orchestra. Researchers are advised to perform keyword searches for composers, musical works, and artists, particularly since many original sound recordings did not list the orchestra or musical group and are therefore listed as "Unknown." Many of the original recordings had a numbering scheme, the key to which is undefined. The numbers were preserved and are listed as "Stokowski Numbers" after the description.

The final series consists of index cards to the collection. The numbering scheme on the cards do not always appear to match the numbering scheme on the original recordings. In some cases, the numbering schemes do match and the cards may be of some use to researchers, although, the information contained on the card is also included in finding aid.

Scope and Contents

This scrapbook was assembled by Marian Angell Godfrey Boyer from 1907 to 1926. With newspaper clippings and playbills, portraits, and concert reviews which appear to have been clipped from programs, Boyer documents a portion of Stokowski’s career as a composer in Philadelphia. This volume consists primarily of programs of Stokowski’s shows with the Philadelphia Orchestra, often with penciled notes, presumably by Boyer. The first several pages consist of a handwritten list entitled, "Piano & Orchestra," with an alphabetical listing of composers and works. The scrapbook also includes reviews of the shows presented by these programs and clipped biographies of the musicians who played for Stokowski, including his first wife, Olga Samaroff, pianist Ernest Schelling, and sister pianists Rose and Ottilie Sutro. This volume contains several full newspaper articles about Stokowski, as both conductor and family man, and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The end of this scrapbook contains full-page spreads on musicians from the period, complete with photographs, article clippings, and biographies. While the majority of programs and announcements feature the Philadelphia Orchestra, researchers will find a few programs and annoucements for other musical groups, including the Academy of Music, the Boston-National Grand Opera, the Metropolitan Opera Company, and the Musical Art Club of Philadelphia, as well as programs for lectures and concerts held at Witherspoon Hall. The contents of the scrapbook are not always pasted into the volume in chronological order, and therefore, researchers are encouraged to browse the entire volume. Beyond Mrs. Boyer's manuscript notes, there is very little material in the collection that was not clipped from newspapers or programs. Folders 1 to 4 contain materials that were laid into the scrapbook. On occasion, a laid in item was kept within the scrapbook if its placement was with other relevant items. For the most part, the removed items were found grouped at the front or back of the volume.
