Abstract:
Distributing the “College Art Sets” and the “College Music Sets” to hundreds of institutions in the United States and British Commonwealth has been one of significant initiatives by the Carnegie Corporation during the 1920s-1930s. The art sets contained approximately 200 art history books, 1,500 mounted photographs of architecture, sculpture and painting, and small collections of original prints and textiles, all housed in specially made wood cabinet. The music sets contained an electric phonograph, over 800 records housed in a cabinet, 250 bound scores, and 129 books on musical subjects. The contents varied slightly over the years. More modest art sets were also distributed to secondary schools.
