Marian Anderson—Seven Decades at Carnegie Hall and Beyond: From the Carnegie Hall Archives

Before her death in 1993, legendary contralto Marian Anderson had a more than 70-year association with Carnegie Hall. Following her debut at the Hall in 1920, she appeared more than 50 times until the mid-1970s. In 1960, she became one of the original board members of The Carnegie Hall Corporation when the Hall was saved from demolition in a campaign led by Isaac Stern. She remained on the board until her death.

Here, Carnegie Hall's Archives and Museum Director Gino Francesconi recounts some of the traits and events that made Marian Anderson such a trailblazer and shares some of the Marian Anderson-related items that we preserve in the Archives and Rose Museum.
