A team of researchers was appointed by MLT to work together on a scoping study aimed at identifying and cataloguing collections of musicians’ letters held in the UK, focusing on material from c. 1900 to the present day. The project ran until the end of 2011 and was carried out by Katharine Hogg, Rupert Ridgewell, Susi Woodhouse, Rachel Milestone and Alexis Paterson, with £5000 of funding provided by MLT.
The scoping study and inventory of collections are available online:
A two-page executive summary of the report is also available:
Further dissemination of the report, e.g. via review in relevant journals, is encouraged.
