Series VI. Scrapbooks, 1939-1973

Scope and Content Notes:

There are 15 scrapbooks in this series. They contain newspaper clippings, programs, and in some instances photographs. Some of the date ranges for the scrapbooks overlap and clippings are duplicated in multiple scrapbooks. For the most part, the scrapbooks center on the performing career of Mildred Miller from her days in high school through her years as a mainstay of the Metropolitan Opera. Not many of the scrapbooks have a more singular theme than that. But, there are a few that are more focused and have shorter date spans. For example the scrapbooks which cover Mildred's time in high school, her years in Colorado, and the Posvars tour of Asia. The scrapbooks are in chronological order by the first year that is covered. The majority of these scrapbooks are in fragile condition and should be handled with care.
