Notes:
Custom Blue Amberol recordings, possibly from a larger set of brown wax field recordings that were recorded in Faaone Tahiti, and possibly privately pressed as Blue Amberol cylinders by Edison in New Jersey. Recordings were possibly made by anthropologists Frank Stimson or Edward S. C. Handy in 1923. Four of the five cylinders are stamped "Tahiti-#" on the rim and handwritten notes on the boxes say "Himene Chorus, Faaone, Tahiti, 1923 (Handy)."
Preservation and digitization of these cylinders funded by a donation from the Liebhaber Family, Santa Barbara, Calif.
Collection:
Donated by Mira Marshall, 2009. Papers of Handy and Stimson are at the Bishop Museum in Hawaii.
