The Fairfield University Glee Club Collection is comprised of concert programs, flyers, brochures, black & white paper-based photographs and negatives of the Club members and directors, and copies of Glee Club recordings in both vinyl and CD. The time covered by the Collection ranges from 1948 through 2015. Concert programs include Glee Club performances from as early 1949 under the direction of Simon G. Harak, who established the choir in 1947, through 2015 under the direction of Carole Ann Maxwell, the present director. Most of the paper-based material is concert programs, ranging from 1949 through 2015. The photographs range from a 1948 negative of the Glee Club’s first radio broadcast to a black & white 1974 photograph of Glee Club members. Noteworthy is a photograph circa 1968 of the Glee Club with Director Harak that includes his son, Rev. G. Simon Harak, S.J., an American peace activist and professor of theology. Among the early Glee Club recordings is “Men in Red,” directed by Simon G. Harak.
