    COLLECTION SC OPE & CONTENT

    The Haywood Music Collection is a broad compilation of thematically organized stamps, covers, commemorative sheets, and more philatelic objects. Themes presented in the collection include composers, performers, musical instruments, festivals, and music industry.

    PROVENANCE & PROCESSING HISTORY

    Like many others, this collection came to the National Postal Museum from the Smithsonian National Museum of American Historys National Philatelic Collection. Dr. Charles Haywood donated part of his personal collection in 1984. It then consisted of 16 albums with 5,168 objects. Now, the philatelic material is divided into 22 separate albums.

    NARRATIVE DESCRIPTION

    Dr. Charles Haywood, a music professor in New York at Queens College, was inspired to begin collecting when he noticed music-related stamps in his sons collection. The collection represented here does not include Haywoods entire collection, which encompassed larger material, like proofs. However, the collection does include stamps, covers, and commemorative postage from a large number of countries and cultures. From Bach to Ella Fitzgerald, from the violin to the bagpipes, these albums represent years of collecting and a broad approach to music, illustrated in the stamps of many countries from the early 19th century to the mid 20th century.

    INDEX

    This index is intended to be comprehensive in order to enable one to find any music related subject quickly. It is also intended to provide quick access to philatelic subjects such as postmarks, proofs and essays.

    Not everything is indexed. For example, company names under Advertising are not indexed because they are in the indexed album in alphabetical order. Likewise, countries are not indexed because they are arranged in alphabetical order under each subject. Types of musical instruments are listed in alphabetical order, except for exotic native musical instruments. These are in country of depiction order.

    Stamp issues are not indexed since they can be found on the Accession sheets. To find them in the collection, simply look up the subject illustrated. Everything is categorized according to design or subject.
