Scope and content

Papers include a copy of 'Where' magazine from 19 Oct 1968, a 'what's on' guide to New Orleans which mentions Elizabeth; correspondence re Elizabeth's accompanist whilst on tour; arrangements re her itinerary and programme; a number of pages of handwritten translations of songs (some of which are in Elizabeth's hand, but not all); letters of support from friends and wellwishers; and press cuttings (all of which appear to concern Elizabeth's performance at the Salzburg Festival in 1970).
