This collection consists of one leather-bound scrapbook assembled by the Carl Busch Recognition Association and the Gamma chapter of the Lambda Phi Delta sorority in connection with a Busch recognition concert held November 25, 1923. It contains replies from people who accepted an invitation to be honorary members of the committee. This event honored Carl Busch. Included in the scrapbook are letters, newspaper clippings, a photograph of Mr. Busch, telegrams, and lists. A special feature added at a later time includes many congratulatory letters which were sent to him in recognition of the award given to him by the Fine Arts College at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1934.
