Vic Damon Collection

Identifier: MS-0060

Scope and Contents

The Vic Damon Collection was donated to LaBudde Special Collections by his son, George Damon, in the 1990s.

The manuscripts collection consists of the handwritten logbook kept by Damon documenting recording sessions produced by his Kansas City studio; related correspondence and notes; 17 photographs; and a trophy awarded by Cash Box for the success of the 1948 song My Happiness, produced by Damon. Mounted captions used for a Vic Damon exhibit previously on display in the UMKC Miller Nichols Library can be found in an addendum to this collection.

The audiovisual materials consist of various recordings that were recorded at Damon's Studio. More items recorded by Vic Damon are searchable in the UMKC Libaries catalog. Cataloged Sound Recordings Recorded by Vic Damon.
