ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY

Washington State University's School of Music was established in 1901. WSU's High School Summer Camp was started in 1933 by Fine Arts Dean Herbert Kimbrough. It eventually expanded to include non-music fields including journalism, speech, drama, and art. Each Camp lasted four weeks (mid-June to mid-July); while the first camp was only 40 high school students, by the mid-1960s it had grown to over 300.

COLLECTION DESCRIPTION & ARRANGEMENT

The collection consists of papers and photographs (including slides) compiled by the program in the middle part of the 20th century.

The collection is organized in two series, the first being Papers and the second being Photographs and Slides. Each series is organized by subject, with folders within each subject being organized either by sub-topic or chronologically, as aappropriate. The final box of photographs is a separate chronological series of photographs originally from WSU's Offices of Printing and Publications.

ACCESS

This collection is open and available for research use. Copyright restrictions may apply.
