Arrangement

The collection is organized chronologically.


Historical Note

Early Orchestra Manager (and cellist and program annotator], Carlo Fischer, may be responsible for collecting clippings in the first decade of the Orchestra. From 1906 through the mid 1960s, most clippings were pasted into Orchestra scrapbooks (Series 9.1). After that time, the clippings were filed by subject in file folders.


Collection Scope and Content Note

The collection includes newspaper and magazine articles about the Minnesota Orchestra, its conductors and music directors, musicians and staff, and reviews of performances. Most of them are arranged by topic within the span of each season.

Due to the acidic nature of the newsprint, Archives staff are photocopying articles on acid-free paper. The first group of clippings are organized in document cases (numbered consecutively] and are stored in the Mezzanine.

Clippings from 1977 to the present are filed in record center cartons, are temporarily labeled, and are stored in Zone B.

Related Material

Scrapbooks in Series 9.1 contain clippings from the early years of the Orchestra.
