Biography/History

Curtis W. Davis (1928-1986) was a television producer best known as the creator of Emmy-award-winning cultural programming for National Educational Television. Davis studied music at Columbia University, where he took composition seminars with Edgard Varese and Otto Luening, and graduated in 1949 with Special Distinction in Music. After serving in the army, Davis began a career in television, and in 1959, he joined National Educational Television, producing programs in arts and music. In 1964, he became the director of cultural programs, and earned three Emmy awards for his programs NET Playhouse (1969),  Cinderella (1970) and  Leopold Stokowski at 88 (1971). Having gone freelance in 1973, Davis teamed up with violinist Yehudi Menuhin to produce an eight-part documentary series for the Canadian Broadcasting Company titled  The Music of Man (1979), which was also made into a book with the same title. In 1981, he joined the Arts and Entertainment Network, becoming their vice president of programming in 1984. During the late 1970s, Davis began working on a biography of the orchestral conductor Leopold Stokowski, with whom he had produced two concert telecasts in addition to the above mentioned profile. Davis died of cancer in 1986, leaving the book unfinished and unpublished.

Scope and Contents

This collection consists of Curtis W. Davis’ research materials for a planned biography of orchestral conductor Leopold Stokowski. Davis conducted his research roughly from the time of Stokowski's death in 1977 to his own death in 1986, though a few pieces continued to be added (presumably by his wife) until 1992. The original materials date back to 1936, though some documents in photocopied versions extend back to 1865.

This collection is arranged in six series: I. Research materials and notes, II. Leopold Stokowski correspondence, III. Interviews and notes, IV. Curtis Davis correspondence, V. Draft of Stokowski biography by Curtis Davis, VI. Leopold Stokowski photographs and slides. More information is given about each of these series below.

Collection Inventory

I. Research materials and notes.

Scope and Contents note

The first series, Research materials and notes, contains the bulk of the collection and is arranged into seven subseries. Davis intended to use Stokowski as a lens through which to view ”the extraordinary transformation which has overtaken Western music since the start of [the 20th] century.” For this reason, the collection contains a range of materials, some less directly related to Stokowski than others. Major articles and profiles of Stokowski are collected in the first subseries, Articles and clippings on Stokowski, followed by an assortment of miscellaneous newspaper clippings, and obituaries.

The next subseries, Subject files and notes, gathers materials related to specific topics, some of which relate to an aspect of Stokowski’s life and some of which provide broader contextual information. A small portion of these create chronological narratives and are organized by year; most are organized alphabetically by topic. Davis’ notes on these subjects often accompany the materials he collected.

A few topics that relate more directly to Stokowski and his family have been separated out into their own subseries: Stokowski in film, radio, and television, which contains transcripts and typescripts; and Collected writings by Stokowski, which includes a few of his original writings, musical compositions, and arrangements.

Genealogical materials consist mostly of copies of documents from London archives, but also include Davis’ correspondence about these materials. Concert programs and reviews have been arranged chronologically in their own subseries, and include the 100th anniversary concerts which took place after his death.

Finally, this series also includes a few photocopies of Oliver Daniel's research materials. Daniel was another biographer of Stokowski whose papers are now also housed at the University of Pennsylvania in Ms. Coll. 382. Since these photocopies are duplicates of materials in that collection, they have been placed at the end of the series and are not described in any detail.

Davis conducted a number of interviews with people who had known and worked with Stokowski during his lifetime, or had a professional opinion to offer on Stokowski's personality. These appear to have taken place mainly between 1979 and 1982 and are preserved in audio form on cassette tape and in written form in a series of notes made by Davis. Except in one case (Ismond Rosen), full transcripts were never made.

IV. Curtis Davis correspondence.

Scope and Contents note

Aside from Davis’ correspondence regarding genealogical materials, which have been kept (according to his own grouping) with those materials in the first series, all of his research correspondence has been collected into one series, Curtis Davis correspondence, which is arranged alphabetically by correspondent. The correspondence consists mainly of logistical communications, focusing particularly on instructions for receiving information and documents. A few letters, however, contain Stokowski-related information and anecdotes in the letters themselves.
