Abbey Simon Papers

 Collection — Box: 1-8
Identifier: 2020-008
This collection primarily documents Abbey Simon’s career as a concert pianist with a smaller amount of material related to his role as professor in the Moore’s School of Music at the University of Houston. Materials in the collection date from the late 1940s through approximately 2013, with a bulk of the materials from the 1960s-1990s. A bulk of the materials in the collection are programs from throughout his career, but the collection also includes correspondence, contracts, audio recordings (mostly commercial on which Simon recorded), photographs, magazines, news clipping, marketing materials, biographical information (including a curriculum vitae), awards, and posters.
