Administrative InformationReturn to Top
The albums are stored flat. The only ordering is due to size, for ease in storing and protecting the collection.
These records were discovered tucked away on MASC shelving in June of 2015; they had been received in MASC sometime in July of 1979 or earlier, but no record of their provenance otherwise exists.
Additional recorded albums relevant to Washington State University history may be added to this collection in the future.
This collection was processed in June, 2015 by University Archivist Mark O'English.
One additional album, Cougar Pep Songs, 1934, was found with these other recordings and moved to WSU Publications 113 (Music: Songbooks and Records). Other albums of WSC music may be found there as well.
