The Fromm Music Foundation was founded in 1952 in Chicago by Paul Fromm (1906-1987); it moved to the Music Department at Harvard University in 1972. For more biographical and historical detail, see the Foundation website.


Arranged in four series:

Scope and Contents

This collection of manuscript and print scores represents work by composers receiving commissions from the Fromm Music Foundation. Scores dating from before the Foundation's founding are presumed to have been in Paul Fromm's personal collection, as were miscellaneous manuscript and printed items. Recordings of some compositions are present as phonograph records, audiotapes, and CDs; those mentioned in the compositions series have been moved to Series III: Recordings in other formats.
These are preliminary lists imported from the original database, unauthoritative, incomplete, and intended only for reference use.
