Abstract:

The American Handel Society seeks to foster study of the life, works, and times of George Frideric Handel, and to encourage and support the performance of his music. The Society was founded in 1986 by University of Maryland music professors Howard Serwer and Paul Traver, with Princeton music professor J. Merrill Knapp. The American Handel Society Archives span the years of 1981-2006, with the bulk of the material dating from 1985-1994. The collection includes member information, financial reports, Board of Directors meeting minutes, newsletters, correspondence, grant applications, and information relating to the Maryland Handel Festival. Also included are the notes and files for the Bibliographic Database and Discography projects, including printouts of both databases.
