About this collection

The Lionel Hampton collection span most of his musical career, 1926–2002, with the bulk of the collection dating 1940–1990. There are obvious gaps and a narrow focus of some parts of the collection. The absence of many personal papers and much memorabilia that one might expect in a collection of this sort is likely due to a fire that destroyed Hampton’s New York City apartment in early 1997.
