Scope and arrangement
The Joseph Strimer papers, dating from 1913 to 1955, are primarily composed of score manuscripts, and also contain a small set of professional papers.
The scores are for five instrumentations: choral, instrumental, organ, piano, and songs for voice and piano. Item-level descriptions of the scores can be found on the archival portal. The papers contain Strimer’s 1913 diploma from the Saint Petersburg Conservatory; his 1924 certificate of membership in the Société des Auteurs, Compositeurs et Éditeurs de Musique; an undated copyright registration form for The Legend of the Calvary Clover; and a list of Strimer’s published music.
The collection is in two divisions, Papers and Scores. The scores are subdivided alphabetically by instrumentation.
