Scope and content

Contains personal and professional correspondence, records of professional associations and consultative work, as well as teaching materials and lectures. His particular expertise in musical education and in particular, orchestras, resulted in him being commissioned by both private and public sector bodies to undertake studies and prepare reports. Many of these were published and led to developments in both these areas. Also included in this accession are manuscripts of addresses, articles and one book entitled Theodore Thomas: America's conductor and builder of orchestras 1835-1905, (University of Illinois Press, 1989).
