Abstract:

Correspondence; financial records; radio broadcast transcripts; manuscript and published articles; newsclippings; and notebooks of Ernest Newman.

The correspondence is largely with Newman's publishers and usually relates to business matters. There are also letters and other material relating to Newman's controversy (1943) with the Workers Music Association, a British left-wing, pro-Soviet organization. In addition, Series VI contains several letters (1947) by and about Winifred Wagner describing her situation in post-war Germany, as well as conditions in Bayreuth. The transcripts are of BBC broadcasts (1928-1933) in which Newman reviewed concerts and introduced listeners to musical performances to be broadcast in the coming week. The manuscripts are of Newman articles, largely on musical topics, that appeared in a variety of publications, ca. 1910s-1950s; many have emendations in his hand. The published articles are by Newman as well as by others; they are on both musical and non-musical topics.

The notebooks make up the bulk of the collection and cover a wide range of musical topics as well as some non-musical ones. Volumes concentrating on Liszt and Wagner predominate: the series includes the "Wagner Journals," a chronicle of Wagner's daily activities from 1868 to 1882 that was compiled by Newman, probably to assist him in writing Wagner as man and artist (New York: A.A. Knopf, 1924) and The life of Richard Wagner (New York: A.A. Knopf, 1933-1946). Handwritten, and employing a large number of abbreviations, the notebooks are often difficult to decipher.

Newsclippings are contained on eight reels of microfilm. Five reels contain the 39 volumes of newspaper clippings of Newman's music criticism from 1905 to 1959. Another two reels are entitled Clippings about Newman 1905-1963 and undated; while this title is largely correct, the reels also include clippings by Newman as well as clippings by other authors on general musical topics. These seven reels are arranged chronologically with undated material at the start of the series. The eighth reel contains loose newspaper and magazine clippings of Newman articles (1901-1959) arranged alphabetically by name of publication. At the end of the reel, there are a small number of clippings about Newman.
