USD Digital Library of South Dakota Adds Unique Music Catalogs from the Mahoney Music Collection

University of South Dakota Archives and Special Collections has announced the addition of two unique assortments of material from the Mahoney Music Collection to the Digital Library of South Dakota.

These collections include 30 illustrated catalogs of the famed Lyon & Healy brokers and harp makers and 13 treatises from violin masters before 1850. The catalogs, ranging in date from 1890-1940, include rich descriptions and illustrations of both rare and modern violins, violas, and violoncellos, as well as the harps for which the company would become most well-known. The treatises include Leopold Mozart's 1756 treatise, as well as treatises by Francesco Geminiani, Carl Flesch, Ivan Galamian.

View both collections on the Digital Library of South Dakota.

The Mahoney Music Collection contains more than 4,800 books, magazines, pamphlets, and ephemera documenting the history, craftsmanship, and playing of stringed instruments. The collection contains a particularly comprehensive assortment of books about violins and the violin family instruments. The collection was gifted the collection to the University of South Dakota in June 2006 by John P. and Barbara Mahoney, who continue to add new materials.

“Neighbours in Arms:” A small selection from the Larry Pressler Papers


Archives and Special Collections is pleased to announce that a small selection of material from the Larry Pressler Papers has been digitized and is now available in the Digital Library of South Dakota. These documents have been selected to coincide with the recent publication of Senator Pressler’s book, Neighbours in Arms: An American Senator’s Quest for Disarmament in a Nuclear Subcontinent, for which Senator Pressler used numerous materials from his papers located in the Archives and Special Collections. These selected materials relate to Pakistan, nuclear nonproliferation, and the Pressler Amendment. Neighbours in Arms: An American Senator’s Quest for Disarmament in a Nuclear Subcontinent was published in July, 2017.

Senator Larry Pressler, born March 29, 1942 in Humboldt, South Dakota, graduated from the University of South Dakota in 1964. He later attended Oxford University (as a Rhodes Scholar), Harvard University John F. Kennedy School of Government, and Harvard Law School.  He served in the US House of Representatives from 1975-1979 and the US Senate from 1979-1997, becoming the first Vietnam veteran elected to the Senate. The Larry Pressler Papers are a closed collection housed within the Archives and Special Collections at the University of South Dakota that maintain a comprehensive account of the Senator’s life and work in service to the state of South Dakota.

The photograph featured below, as well as several others, can be found in the University of South Dakota Photograph Collection, Series 3.
