About

Alfred Corning Clark (1844-1896), heir to a large part of the Singer sewing machine fortune, was an American art patron and philanthropist who traveled extensively in Europe, meeting many prominent figures in the arts of the late nineteenth century.

The collection contains many photographs of those figures, a few of which are autographed, a book of scores containing opera excerpts and art songs by European composers of the period, a song manuscript personally dedicated to Clark, and other items pertaining to Clark’s interests in music and art.
