This is a collection of printed sheet music and original musical manuscripts collected by Bonita resident Lee Whitney. She
was an actress, dancer, voice and stage teacher. Referred to as the “Prima Donna of Great Waltz” the soprano performed opera
and concerts in France and throughout the United States. The collection holds materials from 1902-1990. Some materials are
un-dated. There is little obvious that ties the contents together except that the composers represented have varied relationships
to music in Southern California and were notable in their era. They worked in the region as composers, teachers, songwriters,
and in the film industry.
