This collection contains operettas for children ranging from primary grades into high school. The current collection’s dates range from 1912 through 1993, with the bulk of the materials ranging from 1924 through 1958. The operetta subjects explore a wide range of themes, including holidays, patriotism, history, music education, folk tales, and fairy tales, among others. The collection was begun using materials from the Rose Marie Grentzer collection; the collection will include new additions as more materials that fit the scope of the collection are received.
