Abstract:

In the first series there is a smattering of professional correspondence from 1904, however the majority spans the years 1910-1931. The trove of over 1500 personal letters to/from Chadwick and/or Mrs. Chadwick includes substantial correspondence from Frederick Converse, Henry Higginson, Helen Hopekirk, Horatio Parker, Frederick Stock, Carl Stoeckel, Templeton Strong, and Theodore Thomas, as well as limited correspondence from Amy Beach, Walter Damrosch, Antonin Dvorak, Gabriel Faure, Arthur Foote, Isabella Stewart Gardner, Percy Grainger, Henry Hadley, Charles Loeffler, Edward MacDowell, Walter McEwen, Josef Rheinberger, Jean Sibelius, John Phillip Sousa, and Leopold Stokowski. The photograph series includes: a small number of Chadwick portraits; Chadwick family photos; several group photos taken at the Bohemian Grove (San Francisco) of Chadwick with colleagues including Clarence Eddy, William McCoy, Henry Hadley, and Joe Redding; staged performance photos from Bohemian Grove; and individual portraits of several other figures such as Frederick Converse, Henry Dunham, Wallace Goodrich, William McCoy, Karl Muck, Horatio Parker and Templeton Strong. Series five consists primarily of Chadwick's date-books from the years 1889-1931 and desk calendars from 1927-1931. Also included are several of Ida May Chadwick's travel diaries, an accounts ledger, and an address book. The sixth series contains over five hundred newspaper clippings, primarily reviews of Chadwick's music, dating from the late 1880s to 1931. Works of Chadwick discussed in these articles include: Antony and Cleopatra, Aphrodite, Cleopatra, Jubilee, Noel, Melpomene, Judith, The Lily Nymph, Phoenix Expirans, Sinfonietta, Symphony no. 3, Symphony in C, Suite Symphonique, String Quartet in E minor, Symphonic Sketches,Tabasco, and Tam O'Shanter. Chadwick's memoirs(diaries) and day-books make up series seven. There are eighteen volumes of memoirs - some bound, and some loose - some handwritten and some typewritten. They span the years of Chadwick's childhood (recollections and family history) through 1930.In addition there are sixteen bound daybooks spanning the years 1905-1930. While the earlier daybooks have little writing in them, the later volumes contain a good deal of writing, making them similar to the memoirs. The eighth series consists of programs, primarily of performances that included Chadwick's music both at and outside of NEC. The writings of Chadwick - speeches, tributes, reports, and articles make up series nine. The tenth series consists of three scrapbooks, presumably assembled by Chadwick himself. The first, consisting of approximately twenty-five pages, includes mainly newspaper clippings from the years 1884-1886, many of which discuss Chadwick's music. Towards the back of the scrapbook there are a number of pages that contain clippings of poetry. The second scrapbook, spanning the years 1873-1896, includes various programs, invitations, articles, and correspondence to Chadwick. The third volume in this series which dates from 1904-1906 is a combination scrapbook/memoir. It contains programs and clippings, many of which are accompanied by Chadwick's handwritten annotations. This volume also contains some daily journal entries, mainly from January-May 1906. Some items in the eleventh series, the miscellaneous material category, include: biographical information about Chadwick, contemporary information/criticism relating to specific Chadwick works, inventories of Chadwick's music and his music collection, and records of Chadwick's music royalties from several publishers. Series twelve, a small collection of artifacts, includes Chadwick's wallet and its contents, a medal awarded to Chadwick by the American Academy of the Arts and letters in 1909, and a silver bowl given to Chadwick in 1914 by the NEC faculty. The microfilm reels contain Chadwick's memoirs, diaries, and scrapbooks, along with some musical works (Te Deum in D major, Quartet no. 2, vocal score to act 1 of Pontius Pilate), and music sketchbooks from 1885, 1894, and 1897.
