Administrative History

The International Harp Archive (1994- ) began as a significant collection of harp music and archival materials donated by Samuel O. Pratt and Rosalie Rebollo Pratt. The collection grew and the International Harp Archives were formally established at Brigham Young University in 1994, and now consists of the contributions of many individuals and organizations. The archive’s major objectives is to build a near-comprehensive library of scores and recordings that feature the harp, preserve documents related to the careers of important harpists and harp makers, maintain archives of organizations that promote the harp and its music, and to make all of these materials accessible to interested performers and researchers throughout the world.
