DESCRIPTION
The Thomas Kemp Collection is a collection of 78rpm records generously donated by Thomas H. Kemp. Mr. Kemp has been collecting many forms of music and their players in Washington DC over the past 50 years. This collection includes several boxes of 78rpm records as well as 80rpm Edison records.

Tom's collection contains many rare examples of early acoustic recordings pressed on 78rpm shellac records. It even includes records recorded in other languages that would have been difficult to find in the US, including records in Italian, French, Russian, German, Hebrew, Arabic, Danish and Swedish.
