Amelita Galli-Curci Collection-Table of Contents
Scope and Content
The Galli-Curci Collection consists of 31 boxes of scrapbooks, photographs, and recordings. The scrapbooks are believed to have been assembled by a close friend of Galli-Curci rather than by the artist herself. The scrapbooks range in date from 1916 (when she first arrived in the United States) to 1937 (following her ill-advised attempted return to the Operatic stage). There is no correspondence included with the collection. The original 78rpm records have been transferred to both cassette and cd.
