James B. Felton (October 9, 1927-October 12, 1999), a Philadelphia-based music critic and composer, gathered the material in this collection in anticipation of a biography of Leopold Stokowski, which he did not complete. This collection covers the period of 1916 to 1971, with the bulk of the materials from 1968 to 1971. It primarily consists of photocopies of newspaper articles, certificates, and correspondence relating to Stokowski. The notebooks contain abstracts of recorded interviews with musicians and various individuals who worked with Stokowski.
