Notes

Abstract: Willis Conover (1920-1996) was a broadcaster on the Voice of America for over forty years, produced jazz concerts at the White House and Newport Jazz Festival (as well as for television and movies), and is generally credited with bringing jazz to eastern Europe during the Cold War. In 1997, the Willis Conover Jazz Preservation Foundation, Inc. donated a collection of over 22,000 sound recordings, correspondence, manuscripts, program notes, memorabilia, photographs, books, and other personal items to the University of North Texas Music Library. This presentation will include a brief biographical sketch of Conover's life, a discussion of the different items in the collection, and examples of digitized physical items as well as sound recordings. In doing so, I hope to arrive at a clearer understanding of Conover's importance to the presence of jazz in eastern Europe.
