Newton Wayland Collection

  • US US.INSON Mss 066
  • Folder
  • 1970 - 2000

The Newton Wayland Collection was received along with the larger Bethards-Massey Collection in November 2019 from the Paramount Theatre, Oakland. It was the working library used by Wayland in his performances as conductor of pops orchestras. The collection includes arrangements (scores and parts) of primarily popular music by Wayland and others, as well as some light classical sets. The majority of the materials are not published.
The collection was a working rental library under the auspices of Jean Cunningham at the Paramount Theatre, Oakland. While it is presumed that it was organized in some manner while at the Theatre, it came to us haphazardly with individual sets of the same arrangements located far apart. The materials were housed primarily in manila envelopes or accordion folders, often they were kept in whatever mailer was used to return them to the library. Labels, when they were present, were often for other titles.
