HSC logo HSC Main Image - 61 Seasons of Song


The backbone of these displays are scans of the superb scrapbooks kept by Lee Stevens spanning the period 1965 -1985, containing programs, reviews, newspaper articles, photos, and so on.  These are in five scrapbooks, but after scanning they have been broken up into nine files to keep the size down.  Nonetheless, these are mostly large files and they will take a while to download.  Note that the highlights below are not intended to be a summary of the contents, but rather they are just somewhat capriciously chosen "teasers" of what you'll find in these volumes.  There are some internal indications that the first scrapbook (1965-75) was compiled by an unknown person other than Lee, and there is some duplication with the 1970-74 scrapbook.  The Lee Stevens scrapbooks have been augmented before 1965 with documents from the HSC archives.
