YIVO's Ruth Rubin Legacy online exhibit (project coordinator)

The Ruth Rubin Legacy highlights the renowned vocalist and scholar's collection of over 1,700 Yiddish songs performed by some of the most extraordinary traditional singers of the 20th century, including Rubin herself. The 78rpm acetate discs, reel-to-reel tapes and cassettes recorded by Rubin between 1946 and the 1970s are in the process of being painstakingly re-assembled and are made truly accessible here for the first time. Ruth Rubin's entire life's work can be found on this site: field recordings, lectures, concerts, radio interviews, videos, manuscripts and published materials. exhibitions.yivo.org/ruthrubin
