Biographical note

The George H. O'Connor Recording Collection consist of 74 phonograph records, each of which has at least one recording by George H. O'Connor (1874 - 1946). The reverse side of many of the records have recordings by such artists as Al Jolson, Morton Harvey, Arthur Fields, Marguerite Farrell and Irving Kaufman. Most of the records are copies of those made available to the public (probably made between 1916 and 1917), but there are several special recordings of broadcasts in memory of O'Connor (by WOL, WWDC, and WINX) as well as recordings of live performances by O'Connor. The collection first belonged to George H. O'Connor but then was augmented with the memorial recordings by his son, George H. O'Connor, Jr. For more information about George H. O'Connor and his Collection, please see the finding aid for The George H. O'Connor Papers.
