The James Gillespie Library, named in honor of Dr. James Gillespie, Editor Emeritus of The Clarinet, houses the complete collection of The Clarinet dating back to the first issue from 1973. There are over 2,000 articles in the collection, and you can use the Master Index to search by article or subject. Throughout the next few months, we will be featuring past articles on a wide variety of subjects in our weekly roundup, and members can access and read these (and many more!) in the James Gillespie Library.
