Much of this material probably was sent to Affelder in his role as the director of Program Note Service, and dates from 1964-1975. The collection also includes drafts of Affelder's writings, including reviews and other pieces that appeared in Musical America, the Brooklyn Eagle, and The National Observer. A small amount of personal papers cover Affelder's student years and his early work as a conductor. His 1935 summer spent studying conducting at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria is especially well documented through a set of letters home to his family and a scrapbook containing postcards, commercial photographs, and snapshots, which show some of the notable musicians he encountered during his stay, including Adrian Boult, Arturo Toscanini, and Felix Weingartner. Also well represented, by clippings and programs, is the period (1939-1942) in which Affelder served as the conductor of a WPA orchestra in Richmond, Virginia. The collection also includes an incomplete set of orchestral parts for the Emmerich Kálmán-George Marion, Jr. operetta, Marinka, which was staged in New York in 1945.
