Accession Number: 
7 linear feet (3.5 MBs, 2 OS)

These papers, part of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra Records, are materials collected by musician and photographer Laré Wardrop (1909-1979). Wardrop joined the DSO as an oboist in 1938. He retired in 1965, having also served as English hornist. These papers include DSO articles and concert programs, from the late 1940s to the 1970s, and many of Wardrop's photographs of symphony musicians, conductors and events over the years. There are programs and itineraries from DSO tours, as well as several of Wardrop's music scores for oboe. Two boxes containing Wardrop's slides and negatives have been transferred to the Reuther Library AV Department.
