Preserving the History of Caramoor's Rosen House: An Assessment of Archival Collections

A preservation assessment of archival collections at the Caramoor Center for Music and the Arts, which was founded in the 1930s by the Rosen family. The architectural drawings, correspondence, photographs, diaries and ledgers, music scores, and sound recordings document the development of Caramoor as a performing arts center and the Rosen family's patronage of the arts.

Caramoor seeks NEH funding to assess the archival materials in the historic Rosen House. The project will include a plan for how to inventory the archival material; an assessment of current storage conditions; recommendations for future storage; and training in preservation techniques for Rosen House staff and volunteers. By gaining intellectual and physical control over the archival materials, Caramoor will be able to share with the public the story of Walter and Lucie Rosen, their contributions to art and music in the first half of the 20th century, and the history of Caramoor as a performing arts center.
