We are excited to bring our heritage to you in this new digital archive library, made possible through the generosity of 4Culture and private donations. We will be adding artifacts as they are scanned, so check here and the LMC’s news section for updates.

The LMC is proud of our long and rich history over the club’s 125+ year lifetime. In addition to being a club of incredible musicians, we have also been a club of meticulous record-keepers. As a result, the LMC has over 40 boxes of historical artifacts in MOHAI’s Sophie Frye Bass library as well as our own internal archive collection.

The LMC Auxiliary was formed in 1929 to “give young women music students an opportunity for greater self-expression in the Art and an opportunity for the realization of the joy of music as an activity in their lives through the aiding of one another in this accomplishment” (Constitution, Article II). Similar to the LMC Members’ Books, the Auxiliary Members’ Books capture the full activities of the Auxiliary, a list of members and officers, and musical programs.
