The International Association of Music Libraries (IAML) was founded in Paris, France in July of 1951. The organization’s founding was part of the United Nations’ mission to promote world peace, and membership has grown from 20 countries in 1952 to 40 countries in 1991. The principle aim of IAML is to encourage and promote the activities of music libraries and archives, and to promote better understanding of the cultural importance of music libraries both nationally and internationally. The IAML Archives contain administrative documents from 1967 to 2011, including documents from past presidents, vice presidents, treasurers, and secretary generals. Each accession includes the papers of a specific Board member, including Thor E. Wood and Ruth Henderson, past presidents, as well as Don Roberts, MLA Past-President.
