In searching for Stokowski’s personal items, we learned that much of what he planned to leave behind as a personal archive was lost! The story has been repeated and retold by several people knowledgeable about Stokowski’s final years. After his passing in 1977, his personal archive was being shipped from London to America by boat. The cargo crate reportedly was lost overboard during rough seas. The materials we find now were either left behind in Philadelphia or donated by others who retained items on their own.
