About the Collection

Kenneth S. Goldstein, 1928-1995

Kenny Goldstein was a man of many facets who became an important friend of the Center for Popular Music late in his life. During his career he was a scholar, professor, folklorist, record producer, festival organizer and more. Most essentially, he was a collector who amassed a remarkable personal library of books, sheet music, song books, recordings and other materials. The Center was grateful to become the repository for Dr. Goldstein's collection of American song broadsides and songsters shortly before his death in 1995.
