Vahdah Olcott-Bickford Correspondence (IGRA)

About this Collection

As founder of the American Guitar Society in 1923, Vahdah established a mission to promote the "classic" guitar through education, publications and new compositions for the instrument in an era when the guitar was gaining prominance within popular dance idioms. This collection traces her career as a classical guitarist, composer, teacher, author, publisher and astrologer, and demonstrates her reach of influence well beyond her Los Angeles home to include musicians, composers, publishers, teachers and students from around the globe.
