Historian; Musicologist. Papers primarily relate to Drinker's work on the history of women and music, and her promotion of choral singing by women. Types of materials include correspondence, research, and writings for her books Brahms and His Women's Choruses (1952), and Music and Women: The Story of Women in Their Relation to Music (1948). Of particular interest are the songbooks, or stimmenhefte, which chorus women copied from Johannes Brahms' manuscripts. There are also 16 volumes of bound notes for Music and Women on women and music around the world from prehistoric times to the 20th century.
