    The edges of many of the programs have been trimmed, and the date and place of performance are frequently lacking. However, the programs are pasted into the scrapbooks in chronological order. The Music Library also received over 4000 recordings (2270 -1.p.'s and 1750 -78 r.p.m.'s) from the estate of Professor Schaeffer.

    Scrapbooks include music concert programs, ballet programs, and other shows performed in the San Francisco Bay Area.
