About this collection

 

Browse all items in the collection

 

The Newberry collects manuscript and printed source materials for western European music from the late Middle Ages into the early twentieth century and for American music from the seventeenth to the mid-twentieth century. There are also strong holdings for musical life in Chicago, from the mid-nineteenth through the twentieth century.

Featured here is a selection of digitized images from our music holdings. This digital collection will grow as we continue to make these primary source documents freely available online.
