Artefact

Speech given by Ida Gertrude Carroll (1905-1995, student and principal of the Northern School of Music) to the South Manchester Halle Club. The speech gave a summation of how the Northern School of Music was run including how it was funded, who taught there, and how many students the school had.
In this speech Ida references the schools "much beloved" founder Hilda Hester Collens (1883-1956, founder and principal of the Northern School of Music) and her belief that the school should run on "hard work and happiness".
