For some of these holdings, the 1969 A Review of Acquisitions, 1949–1968, published in New York by The Pierpont Morgan Library, will be useful. Most of the musical listings came directly from The Mary Flagler Cary Music Collection (The Pierpont Morgan Library, New York, 1970).
This repository began as the private library of the famous financier and banker J. Pierpont Morgan. In 1924 Morgan's son made it a public institution in memoriam to his father. The library is particularly rich in early, illuminated manuscripts and in the holographs of well-known cultural figures.
In 2008 the Morgan acquired the James Fuld Collection of music and dance materials.
