Historical Note

Donald L. Engle was the first paid president of the Association. Previously the Minnesota Orchestral Association was managed by an elected President and the General Manager. The majority of the collection consists of copies of correspondence from Engle, including both administrative and artistic correspondence, much of which focuses on fund raising and development activities.

The Richard M. Cisek series includes materials from his tenure as general manager and as president. The collection consists of office correspondence (notably with Stanislaw Skrowaczewski), personnel files, and subject files that reflect his involvement with all areas of Orchestra operations notably artistic planning and recording and airing of Orchestra recordings.

The David Hyslop collection contains office records from the tenures of Presidents Richard Cisek, Deborah Borda, Tom McBurney, and Hyslop due to the ongoing and overlapping nature of the work of the President.
