The archives of the World Harp Congress are held in the International Harp Archives at Brigham Young University.
The goal of the International Harp Archives is to build an extensive research collection of harp music and documentation related to harp and the musicians who dedicated their lives to preserve and perpetuate the harp’s history and ensure its future.
Materials range from scores, manuscripts and recordings to photographs, correspondence, programs and other documents. Currently the International Harp Archives has over 15,000 scores and sound recordings in addition to the archives of more than 50 individual harpists and harp organizations. The archives included the papers of notable historic harpists such as Henriette Renié, Carlos Salzedo, Mildred Dilling, and Alfred Kastner, as well as the papers of many important living and recently deceased harpists. In all, the archival holdings occupy more than 650 linear feet of storage.
