The Les Baxter Collection was established in 2006 through the gift of Tom Eaton (Les’ grandson) and Leslie Eaton (Les’ daughter).

This collection contains Les Baxter’s personal library of career-related music and memorabilia. The bulk portion of the library consists of music arrangements written by Les for film and record dates. In addition to the music, there are also various personal and professional items from his career. Materials include photographs, printed matter, recordings and production materials.

In addition to arrangements written by Les Baxter, there are also works by Albert Harris, Hall Daniels, Bill Loose, and Frank Comstock.
