Scope and Contents: Contains copies of concertmaster Josephine Boudreaux's scrapbook, letters, postcards, concert programs, and photographs. The scrapbook was begun by a friend to document Miss Boudreaux's time in Europe.

Her correspondence contains letters from Grace Keller, Maurice Hewitt, Blanche Foley, William Reher, Lucien Capet, Father Garriga, Jeno de Hubay, Mary Fuller, Huberta Garwood, and to Vincent d'Indy. The letter from William Reher notes the inability to raise money in 1921 to reestablish the Houston Symphony.

Of particular note are news clippings pertaining to the reestablishment of the Houston Symphony Orchestra and programs for the Association's presentations of the Boudreaux String Quartet.

Twenty-eight photographs, stored on 2 compact disks, were scanned and removed to the Photography Collection. One compact disk remains in the collection, with photographs of the scrapbook pages. The scrapbook is fragile, and the construction such that it was not possible to photocopy every overlying clipping.
