• Bradley Institute of Music fonds

      Adams, Anne (2011-09-21)
      These are the archival records of the Bradley Institute of Music that operated out of Niagara Falls, Ontario from 1930 to 2008. The bulk of the materials consist of writings by Harold Bradley and Grace Barnes. These works focus on the philosophy, history and science of the Institute. In instances where formal titles for their writing are non-existent, the first line of the page becomes the folder title. The collection also contains programs, correspondence, newspaper clippings, photographs and items from The Bradley Institute. The fonds contain information on Isidor Philipp, a world-renowned piano authority who co-founded the school with Harold Bradley; Grace Barnes, a concert pianist who was in charge of the preschool classes; Norman Gibson who made music easier to understand by writing A Chronological System of Music Notations, and John Pierce Langs.
