Ward Collection featured “Treasure” in Harvard Magazine
The Harvard Theatre Collection, part of Houghton Library, has been enriched in thousands of ways by the collecting zeal of William Powell Mason Professor of Music Emeritus John M. Ward and the late Ruth Neils Ward. Professor Ward is developing collections which reflect the uses of music in opera, ballet and social dance; his collection are used regularly by researchers in these fields and by Harvard students who can take an individual item in the collection and use it as the point of entry into this fascinating world. The March-April 2010 issue of Harvard Magazine has chosen Paine of Almack’s Quadrilles from the Ward Collection as its latest Treasure from Harvard University collections.
