Pensacola Music Association Records

 Collection — Container: M1990-11
Identifier: M1990-11

Scope and Contents

Records, 1947-1964, including event programs and photographs. The Association presented musical artists including opera singers, quartets, chamber and philharmonic orchestras and other musical events in Pensacola. Select artists include Duke Ellington, Marcel Marceau, Max Rudolf, and Beverly Sills.


Dr. Nathan S. Rubin was a founder and for many years, the Music Director, of this organization. Many of the photographs of visiting artists are autographed and inscribed to him.


As with the case of ballpoint pens, the written inscriptions on many of the photographs show evidence that the ballpoint ink, which never completely dries, has been absorbed off the picture onto other nearby papers. This leaves a number of photographs with only imprinted writing or faint impressions.
