Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Dick Crum (1928-2005) was a teacher, dancer, and choreographer of European folk music and dance, but his expertise was in Balkan folk culture. Over the course of his lifetime, Crum amassed thousands of European folk music records. The UCLA Ethnomusicology Archive received part of Dick Crum's personal phonograph collection in 2007. This collection consists of more than 1,300 commercially-produced phonograph recordings (LPs, 78s, 45s) primarily from Eastern Europe. Many of these albums are no longer in print, or, are difficult to purchase. More information on Dick Crum can be found in the Winter 2007 edition of the EAR (Ethnomusicology Archive Report), found here: http://www.ethnomusic.ucla.edu/archive/EARvol7no2.html#deposit.
