Also contained is an NEC publication which discusses the gift, as well as the correspondence documenting the donation of this collection.

The newspaper articles, published in a local paper, highlight Fred DiLucci’s life as well as his involvement with the Thayer Symphony Orchestra.

The photographs series is organized by subject and includes: photos from Milan, Italy; military-related photos; music related photos, both solo and ensemble photos; NEC related photos (including a panoramic photo from the NEC Annual banquet in 1948); and miscellaneous photos.
