This list is divided into four parts: 1958-69
(this section), the 70s,
and the 90s.
Listed here are the available published and unpublished writings of A. H. Benade. They range from casual, hand-drawn slides to journal articles and books. Letters are not included, except a few that were widely circulated by Benade. (SeeBenade/correspondence for the complete Benade letter files.)
