Composer, musicologist, teacher, and performer Erich Katz (1900-1973) was one of the founders of the early-music movement in America and the honorary president of the American Recorder Society. The Erich Katz Collection includes correspondence, programs, publications, manuscripts, legal documents, photos, art, clippings, recordings, and American Recorder Society Files. The materials were collected and saved by Erich Katz over his entire adult life from 1918 to 1973.
All materials in Archives & Special Collections can be found on the 4th floor of Dayton Memorial Library, Room 401. We are currently in the process of hiring a new Archivist; please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to ensure access until we have staffing in place.
