Two local musicians and composers, Cary McMurran and Harold Chapman, have left music, ephemera and personal items in two valuable collections.
A biography of Harold Chapman is available in the Library (catalog link). The Harold Chapman collection is inventoried and the Excel spreadsheet is available for viewing - see the link below.
This collection includes books and over 5,000 pieces of sheet music. The books have been cataloged in the Library's online catalog, and the sheet music has been inventoried (on an Excel spreadsheet). Sample images from the sheet music are available online. A journal article was published in the Virginia Libraries in 2004.
The Vogan Collection is comprised of books and sheet music. The books are cataloged and housed in the Blechman Reading Room on the second floor of the Library. The sheet music is currently being inventoried and cataloged for future use.
