››› List of Satellite Collections

Since its inception, the former Arnold Schoenberg Institute (University of Southern California, Los Angeles) attempted to locate and collect materials relating to Arnold Schönberg from every possible source. Hundreds of individuals and institutions cooperated in this endeavor by contributing material directly, offering material for sale, making facsimiles available, and bequething materials to the Institute. Many materials acquired in such a manner are known as satellite collections in that they relate to the principal archival collection, namely Schönberg's legacy.

In order to provide access to materials in the Institute’s satellite collections, general descriptions and lists have been made of each distinct collection.

All references to Arnold Schönberg the individual are spelled without the umlaut. All other references, whether to Schoenberg in a corporate name or to his relatives, are spelled as established in that context. The Arnold Schoenberg Institute is abbreviated to ASI in the lists of correspondents throughout the article.

Access to all of these collections is open, although users should remember that restrictions, including those pertaining to copyright, usually apply as regards the production of photocopies or other facsimiles of materials in these collections.
