  • Pre-collections PetersA1908 and VriesWde1871. The indexes have been finished in 2023. Digitized autographs and correspondence papers were added to the collection of Stichting De Traditie. This project can be considered finished, although contacts with institurional archives are still going on because it has not yet been decided whether the documents should be deposed in one, or in different institutes (Utrecht, Nijmegen, Haarlem). The number of scans amounts to more than 18,000. The paper pre-collection consists of 26 archive boxes, of which seven deal with carillon, four with organ culture, two with choirs and singing techniques, three with music lessons, one with newspaper reviews, four with personal matter, three with predecessors and colleagues, and two with incoming correspondence. Books and published music scores were not digitized, but listed for biographical purposes. Transparencies and music cassette tapes were neither included, but will in due course be returned to the heirs.

  • Pre-collectie DijkgraafS1908. The pre-collection DijkgraafS1908 was transfered to the Utrecht University Museum on April 10, 2017. The pre-collection DijkgraafS1908 consists today of 51 standard archive boxes, of which 24 contain correspondence, and 11 research protocols; both from the period 1931-1974. The other boxes deal with teaching, management, and lab history, The collection shows a detailed picture of university management before and after WW II. Also the dependence of research on technological developments is covered, as well as the influence of scientists from abroad. Were pre-war scientists happy with the use of string galvanometers and kymographs, operational amplifiers and computers were common practice at Dijkgraaf's retirement in 1974.
