Scope and content
There have been six accruals. The first accrual consists mainly of sheet music. There are also programmes, books and pamphlets in the first accrual as well as puzzles and games, time blocks, wooden notes -- all of these used to teach children music by the Fletcher music method. The second accrual consists mainly of books although there is some sheet music. The third and fourth accruals (26-2007; 50-2008) are sheet music, as are the fifth and sixth accruals. Many of the books in the second accrual are published in the United States and Britain. Eventually the books from both accruals will be catalogued either for Research Collections or the general library stacks. There are still several boxes of sheet music that have not yet been unpacked. There are also three copies of a poster, "'Cello, Otto Joachim, Kinderspiel", n.d.
Immediate source of acquisition
The first accrual was acquired in December 1984; the second accrual in March 1996. Both accruals were donated by Dorothy H. Farquharson. The collection has been called the Farquharson collection in the past. The third accrual was discovered in 2007 and was presumably acquired from Dorothy H. Farquharson. The fourth and fifth accruals were acquired from Morris Norman in 2008 and 2009. The sixth accrual was acquired from Morris Norman in 2011. The seventh accrual (2014-028) was acquired from George Flie in July 2014.
