Abstract:

An artifical collection of monographs, pamphlets, periodicals, articles, clippings, graphic material, and ephemera on or relating to Jenny Lind, Otto Goldschmidt, P.T. Barnum, Sir Julius Benedict, Manual Garcia, many other of Lind's contemporaries and acquaintances, her times, and the history of music and theater in general. There is also material relating to Leonidas Westervelt and other collectors, such as Kitty Cheatham, William A. Hildebrand, Ragnar L. Cederlund, Frieda Hempel, the collecting of Lindiana, and the history of Lindmania.

The material consists of books belonging to Jenny Lind, association and presentation copies; songsters with songs sung by her; sheet music and several bound albums of music, with Jenny Lind songs, many with portraits of Lind in her roles; many miscellaneous portraits (photographic reproductions and illustrations); concert programs; autographs and autograph letters; ephemera (loose and bound) relating to episodes in Jenny Lind's career and personal life, the use of Jenny Lind's name, the Jenny Lind house in Chelsea (N.Y.), Jenny Lind concerts, centennials, and exhibitions.

The collection continues with correspondence between Leonidas Westervelt and other collectors of Lindiana, dealers, and scholars concerning his collecting, lectures and exhibitions; several items relating to the Jenny Lind Photoplay Corporation; a large volume of press clippings on Leonidas Westervelt's career as a playwright, author, and Lind fan, which includes material on theater in the New York (N.Y.) area and theater criticism.

It also contains material collected by Frieda Hempel and given by her to Westervelt: 2 vols. of clippings and ephemera on Hempel's career and her interest in Jenny Lind, and one large volume of original letters from people who heard Jenny Lind sing, solicited by Hempel while she was on a concert tour in England.

Leonidas Westervelt's Jenny Lind collection includes, in addition to books, some of her personal belongings, framed portraits, busts, daguerreotypes, medals and tokens, Jenny Lind bottles, figurines, and manuscripts, such as the contract made between P.T. Barnum and Jenny Lind.

Kitty Cheatham's Jenny Lind Collection consists primarily of clippings on Jenny Lind and Kitty Cheatham's career as a singer and authority on Lind, including one scrapbook; a large collection of Jenny Lind poetry on scraps of paper, gathered by William A. Hildebrand for a projected anthology (housed in a separate box); correspondence, typescripts and illustrated matter.

Edmund Bramhall Child's Collection of Jenny Lind Songs contains ca. 75 music sheets and individual music sheet covers, many with portraits of Jenny Lind.
