Walter and Ida Carroll Collections
Walter Carroll (1869-1955) taught at the Royal Manchester College of Music before becoming one of the founding staff of the Northern School of Music. In 1918 he was appointed the country's first local authority Music Adviser for Manchester Education Committee. He is remembered chiefly for his popular pieces for young pianists, including Scenes at a farm. His daughter Ida Carroll (1906-1995) was first Secretary and ultimately Principal of the Northern School of Music before becoming Dean of Management at the Royal Northern College of Music, from which post she retired in 1976. Material relating to Walter and Ida Carroll was bequeathed to the Royal Northern College of Music and to the Ida Carroll Trust on the latter's death. Among the more valuable items it contains are the autograph manuscripts of Walter Carroll's pedagogic piano works mentioned above. Size of collection: As yet unquantified
