Robert Craft Typescripts Collection

This small collection consists of computer-printed drafts of what eventually would become Craft’s memoirs An improbable life (Vanderbilt University Press, 2002) and Places : a travel companion for music and art lovers (Thames & Hudson, 2000), as they were supplied to Mark Wait, Dean of the Blair School of Music.
