About this collection

Ruth Etting (1897-1978), a native of David City, NE, left Nebraska for Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles to become a "torch singer", recording artist, Ziegfeld girl, and movie star. The Music Library holds an archive containing photographs, sheet music, videorecordings, recordings (LP's, cassette tapes, and reel-to-reel tapes), newspaper clippings, magazine articles, scrapbooks, and correspondence which chronicle her career in the 1920's and 30's. The Image Gallery here presents the photographs and sheet music covers from the Ruth Etting Collection.
