Ben Webster's collection

This collection contains 45 78-rpm records, 211 lps, 12 acetate records, 137 reel-to-reel tapes and one book. They are all catalogued in the library's catalogue. There are some sensational recordings to be found on the privately cut acetate records and reel-to-reel tapes some of them by Webster himself.

There is also a large collection memorabilia in the form of more than 1600 slides, 20 narrow-gauge films, 700 photographs and some private papers.

The unique recordings and all the personal memorabilia were the inspiration behind Frank Büchmann-Møller: Someone To Watch Over Me; The Life And Music Of Ben Webster. University of Michigan Press, 2006
