Collection consists of camera original video recordings shot by Lucille Carra and Duane Sherwood in 1992 for an unfinished documentary about Ignace Jan Paderewski, Polish pianist, composer, and statesman, and his concert tours of America. Includes interviews with Mieczyslaw Horszowki (shortly before his death in 1993); Henry Steinway, and Henryk Kaston (spelled variously as "Kasdan" and "Kasden" on the videocassettes). There are several video recordings (identified as "foundation graphics") containing images of various Paderewski related items (news articles, stamps, photos, drawings, etc.) from the Paderewski Foundation archives. Also included is a published film of Paderewski performing his Minuet as well as Beethoven's Moonlight sonata.
