Bowers Collection

Colorado State University is the proud home of 37 holdings related to Dalcroze Eurhythmics. These materials were donated to our University by Kathy Bowers, former Dalcroze student and retired professor emerita of Webster University in Saint Louis, Mo. Colorado State students who are in residence at the University Center for the Arts have access to these materials on a check-out basis.
