Society for Ethnomusicology Archives
The Society for Ethnomusicology (SEM) was founded in 1955 by David McAllester, Alan Merriam, Willard Rhodes, and Charles Seeger to promote the research, study, and performance of music in all historical periods and cultural contexts. Through its publications and its national and regional meetings, the Society provides a forum for discussion of current scholarly research and fosters the promotion and development of a variety of traditional art forms. The SEM archives consists of administrative records; presidential and other executive committee member papers; minutes; reports; membership rosters; financial reports and audits; committee records; chapter records; conference materials; associated organization materials; and publications including the SEM Journal, Newsletter, and audio-visual and monograph series. Some files in this collection are restricted. Please contact the curator for more information.
