Vanderbilt University Special Collections and University Archives recently acquired the Dinah Shore Collection, documenting the life of Vanderbilt graduate Dinah Shore, BA’38, a prolific singer, actress and talk show host widely popular throughout the 1940s-1980s. Noteworthy items include Dinah Shore fan club newsletters, publicity stills, photographs and scripts from Shore’s talk shows and original music recordings that will be housed in the Wilson Music Library.
