Series V. Programs and Publicity

65 boxes

Approximately 1200 programs from Anderson's performances, dated 1916 to 1978, are arranged chronologically in this series; these are not complete for all performances in her career but do show the extent of her tours and her repertoire. There are over 50 programs for events Anderson attended and more than 100 programs from other performers. Publicity materials for Anderson's career are comprehensive, dating from 1928 through 1970, and include press releases, press kits, souvenir program books, newspaper clippings, and magazines. In addition, many posters are preserved in Oversize. The Rare Book & Manuscript Library holds eight additional Marian Anderson programs, ca. 1915-1924, in the Musical Fund Society Records, Ms. Coll. 90.
