CSU and the Darius Milhaud Society Collection

Founded by Katherine Warne in 1986, the Darius Milhaud Society was a musical organization designed to promote and preserve the music and legacy of French 20th century composer Darius Milhaud.

The Michael Schwartz Library serves as steward for the Darius Milhaud Society and Katherine Warne collections, which include photographs, programs, books, articles, correspondence, scores, and other materials. These materials can be found as digitized artifacts in Cleveland Memory, Special Collections material, material in the library's collection searchable in the catalog, and purchasable material related to Milhaud's life and memory in the library's repository, EngagedScholarship.
