Henry Watson and the RNCM Collection of Historic Musical Instruments
In 1906 Dr Henry Watson gave the Royal Manchester College of Music his collection of musical instruments. In 1910 he gave a 2nd collection to Manchester Corporation which was later displayed in the Henry Watson Music Library. These collections were merged in the 1980s to form the RNCM Collection of Historic Musical Instruments. A few of these instruments have returned to the library to showcase the wonderful museum collection at the RNCM and Henry Watson’s part in it.
