Papers of Betty Freeman, photographer, philanthropist, and patron of New Music and contemporary composers. The collection dates between 1965 and 2008 and contains photographs both of and by Freeman; correspondence with numerous artists and composers; and original artworks by Robert Wilson, John Cage, Steve Reich, and Merce Cunningham. The collection also includes clippings and ephemera related to music and the arts, musical scores dedicated to Freeman, and drafts of unpublished manuscripts written by Freeman.

Betty Freeman was born in Chicago, Illinois, in 1921 and was raised in Brooklyn, New York. She was graduated from Wellesley in 1942, where she had studied music. She later took classes at the Juilliard Institute.

Freeman began her activities as a philanthropist and supporter of musicians in 1961 by contributing to a young musician's legal defense. Since then, she has assisted more than 30 contemporary composers. Beginning in 1964, Freeman served on the board of "Encounters," the Pasadena Art Museum's concert program, and beginning in 1981, she hosted her Monday Evening Musicales, a venue for the new works of composers, in her Beverly Hills home. She served on the board of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, having supported for over a decade the orchestra's New Music Group until its close in 1991.

Betty Freeman was an accomplished photographer. Her exhibit "Music People," a collection of photographs of leading figures in the world of contemporary music, toured internationally and was published as a book entitled Music People and Others (1987). She also produced a documentary film about Harry Partch entitled The Dreamer That Remains: A Portrait of Harry Partch (1972).

Freeman died in January 2009, at the age of 87.
