Robert Avalon Music Collection

Fondren Library is especially grateful to Gloria White and her family for donating this collection to the Woodson Research Center. By making this collection more accessible to the public, we hope the letters, manuscripts, and recordings will inspire musicians, music historians, and composers to explore Robert Avalon's creative legacy and to carry the late composer's deep passion for instilling beautiful music in all our hearts.
