Stevens, Saltzman Minnie
The Minnie Saltzman Stevens Papers consists of personal and legal papers belonging to the noted Bloomington-born Wagnerian soprano. The bulk of the collection contains correspondence between Madam Stevens and her attorney and executor of her estate, Joseph F. Bohrer. There is also correspondence between Madame Stevens and her good friend, Florence Fifer Bohrer; financial records; Italian death certificates; her will and probate documents; legal documents concerning her suit against Columbia Pictures; a book about the Covent Garden Opera Company; and an autograph book from her girlhood. The collection was arranged by the donor, Joseph F. Bohrer, upon his retirement in 1985, and relates to the Minnie Saltzman-Stevens papers at Illinois State University’s archives.
