    A personal collection of Edna Phillips Rosenbaum, principal harpist of The Philadelphia Orchestra (1930-46), harpist for the Fantasia soundtrack, and the first woman to hold a principal position with a major American symphony orchestra. She and her husband Samuel Rosenbaum commissioned some of the most significant works in the harp repertoire, such as the Ginastera Harp Concerto. Acquired in 2004 by the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, the Collection was donated to Illinois by her daughter Joan Solaun.
