The collection contains primarily sound recordings of performances of Jascha Heifetz, but it also includes recordings of other artists, some of whom were collaborators with Heifetz, as well as one recording of his teacher, Leopold Auer. There are 924 recordings on 10" and 12" sound discs, including test pressings, instantaneous discs and commercially released records. Most of the discs are 78 rpm recordings, but there are also a few 33 1/2 rpm 12" discs. In addition to audio discs, the collection contains 88 recordings on magnetic tape which consist of 1/4" tape on 10" reels. 61 of the tapes were made between December 14, 1954 and November 21, 1972. 27 of the tapes are undated. The collection also includes a computer-generated inventory of the collection prepared by the donor.
