Date:

Summary:
This collection, which dates from circa 1961-2006, contains audiorecordings from the UNESCO Collection of Traditional Music of the World, as well as related business records. Includes recordings of tradition and sacred music from Benin, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Côte d'Ivoire, Ethiopia, Madagascar, Malawi, Niger, Sudan, Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Cuba, Peru, Afghanistan, Australia, Cambodia, China, Korea, the Solomon Islands, India, Bali, Java, Japan, Laos, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, Pakistan, Thailand, Vanuatu, Vietnam, Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Morocco, Oman, Syria, and Turkey.
Biographical/Historical note:
The UNESCO Collection of Traditional Music of the World included more than a hundred pioneering audio recordings of the world's traditional music published from 1961 to 2003 on a number of different recording labels. The series was launched in 1961 in collaboration with ethnomusicologist Alain Daniélou (1907-1994) and the International Music Council (created by UNESCO in 1949). The recordings in the Collection are mostly field recordings made in situ, in their original context. Each recording is accompanied by scholarly annotations and photographs. Together, these discs are a reflection of the immense variety of music making and of the position music holds within cultures around the globe.

Content Description:

Also contains vintage silver prints, 16 mm film, CDs, manuscripts, letters, writings, articles (self-published and other) relating to the Schneider's missionary work in the Mambilla region of Cameroon. Some materials relate to the Afo-A-Kom return in 1973.
Biographical / Historical:
Gilbert Schneider (1920-1999) and his wife Mildred Voth (1920-2016) were missionaries to Cameroon between 1945 and 1961. Sponsored by the North American Baptist Commission, they moved to the Mambilla region of Cameroon, and helped build and manage the New Hope Settlement, a hospital for leprosy patients in Mbingo. While abroad, the Schneiders had two children, Evan Schneider and Linda Schneider.

Evan Schneider was born in Cameroon in 1949. He grew up amid the Kom Kingdom in Mbingo, before the family returned to the United States in 1961. They moved to Ohio in 1963, where Gilbert began graduate studies and Mildred worked as a registered nurse. In 1985, Evan received a master's degree in Visual Anthropology at Oregon State University and went on to be a professional photographer. After his father's death in 1999, he returned to Mbingo to establish a memorial fund to benefit the New Hope Settlement and construct the Schneider Memorial Vocational Rehabilitation Center. Currently, Schneider lives in Oregon and is the Chief Photographer at the Oregon Historical Society.
Related Materials:
Gilbert Schneider and Mildred Schneider family papers, 1911-2016 (Coll 570), are held at the Oregon Historical Society Research Library.
