Scope and Contents
The Jacklin Bolton Stopp collection contains materials from 1774 to 1972, with the bulk of the collection dating from approximately 1840 to 1910. Materials include pedagogical musical materials, tune books, other compilations of sacred or secular songs, and sheet music. The collection also includes cantata scores, librettos, hymnals, and music-related books. Of note is the complete holdings of the works of A.N. Johnson, a subject of considerable interest to Stopp. Most scores and collections of printed music were published in the United States.
