Robert Andresen Collection, 1976-1994


Andresen completed the organization of his folk music materials with the intention that they be deposited at Mills Music Library upon his death, after he learned he had cancer, and at the request of folklorist and friend James P. Leary. He died March 10, 1995, and in June of that year Leary and WMA Curator Steve Sundell transferred the collection to Mills Music Library.
