Letter from Maud D, Brooks to Virginia RichmondLetter from Maud D. Brooks to Virginia RichmondPhysical description: 1 folder

Summary

A set of eight letters written between 1888-1890 makes up this collection.  These letters were written by Maud D. Brooks, voice student at NEC (diploma, 1890) to her former roommate, Virginia Richmond, who had previously studied art at NEC. This correspondence provides insight into life at the Conservatory at that time, not only in remarks about faculty and students, but in descriptions of the daily life at NEC such as symphony concerts, operas, dramas etc. Maud Brooks sent this collection to Director Wallace Goodrich in January 1942 on the occasion of NEC’s 75th anniversary.
