Cujé Milwaukee Music Collection
Administrative History/Scope and Content

Administrative History

Named after and dedicated to the memory of Jean Cujé, a library cataloger (1979-1992) at Marquette University who died in November 1992, the collection combines Jean's love of music with her career of providing people with educational and recreational materials through libraries.

The Jean Cujé Milwaukee Music Collection is a unique collection of music in all formats recorded by artists in the Milwaukee area, gathered through donations and purchased to serve the local community. Materials include compact discs, cassettes, phonodiscs, videos and related items. Music of all types is collected, including classical, jazz, folk, rock, etc., recorded by artists who have spent most of their careers living and performing in the Milwaukee area.


Scope and Content

The vast majority of the Cujé Collection is still unprocessed as an archival collection, but most of its published recordings have been cataloged individually in Marqcat.

The contents of the collection will gradually be processed and made available in the Dept. of Special Collections and University Archives in the coming years, arranged into four (4) series with component subseries.

At present, the only processed portion of the Cujé Collection in the archives are the Peter Roller oral history interviews, an individual collection within Series 3.
