Description
This folder contains three documents. The first is entitled “Isolable factors of Musical Talent that be Inherited.” The second is a table recording pitch, intensity, time, consonance, tonal memory, and rhythm. The final document is a booklet entitled “Manual of Instructions and Interpretations for Measures of Musical Talent by C.E. Seashore.” It was published by the Columbia Graphophone Company, New York City, Education Department and was copyrighted in 1919. This text was based on Seashore’s The Psychology of Musical Talent (Boston: Silver, Burdett and Company 1919). Therefore, these documents will be of interest to researchers wanting to know more about mental testing and music.
