Agency History/Biographical Sketch

Olivia Beaudry conducted this research during 2015-16, the time during which much change was coming to the Music Row area with efforts to save RCA Studio A.  The project began, while she was the Archivist at Curb Records, to help Dr. Don Cusic of Belmont University prepare for a presentation at the International Country Music Conference.  Olivia then took upon herself to continue research with other buildings and to photograph many of the buildings as they stood at that time. Olivia Beaudry was also the Library Assistant at the Center for Popular Music at the time this collection was created.
