Bruce Bollerud collection

Scope and Contents

The Bruce Bollerud Collection is housed in seven archival boxes and one oversize folder, arranged in three series. Series are designated for music materials, papers, and sound recordings. Materials include manuscripts of individual original songs and folios, song lyrics, sound recordings in a variety of formats, newspaper clippings, correspondence, gig contracts, recording contracts, royalty statements, manuscript books, and framed items. This collection provides researchers with a body of material for studying Bruce Bollerud, music arranging, rehearsal, performance, and the old-time music scene in Wisconsin from the 1960s-2000s from the perspective of a gigging musician.
