Historic Recordings Archive

The Leiter Reports (3/20/2006) points us to the
wonderful Cylinder Digitization and Preservation
Project at the University of California, Santa Barbara.
The collection boasts more than 6,000 cylinders which
have been converted to downloadable MP3's, WAV files
and streaming audio. In addition to musical pieces, this
historic treasure trove includes speeches by the likes
of Theodore Roosevelt, William Jennings Bryant, and
Thomas Edison. The site is searchable and browsable
(although the search function may be intermittently unavailable
due to heavy traffic).
