Scope and arrangement
The Frederick C. Schang Papers consist of one box (0.42 linear feet) with two types of correspondence. The first is letters or similar items collected for their autographs; these cover an extensive number of years – from 1808 to 1976. A letter from Louis Spohr regarding a piano is the oldest item, and includes a typescript translation; a second letter from him is the next oldest item, dated 1817. The other type of correspondence is personal letters that document his professional relationships with clients, as well as other contemporaries. Many of these letters are addressed to Schang, and only occasionally is there a letter from him to the writer. Folders with a significant number of items include Victor Babin, Dorothy Kirsten, Grace Moore, and the Trapp Family Singers. There is no documentation of official CAMI business, or correspondence between Schang and its board members.
