While living in Chile Juan Orrego Salas studied with Domingo Santa Cruz and Pedro Humberto Allende, Orrego-Salas received grants from the Rockefeller and Guggenheim Foundations that facilitated his travel to the United States to study composition with Aaron Copland and Randall Thompson, as well musicology with Paul Henry Lang and Georg Herzog at Columbia University. He served as one of the founders of the Escuela Moderna de Música, was the creator and first director of the music department of the Universidad Católica de Chile, and was the founding director of the Latin American Music Center at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, from which he retired as Professor Emeritus in 1987. The musical manuscripts include (1)"Contrapunto a dos voces" on ten 5" x7" index cards both sides, typed and handwritten with handwritten edits; (2) "Contrapunto a tres voces", on 12 index cards; (3) "Fuja" on seven index cards followed by a seven card handwritten bibliography; and (4) a single sheet of music a bit smaller than the index cards, perhaps a march, with hand drawings and dedication SIGNED by Juan to his wife Carmen. Together with a black ring-bound notebook with approx 80 pages of handwritten and typed musical writings by Salas in English and Spanish and dated 1941, while he was living in Chile. Also included an oblong photograph album with 12 black pages, containing black and white photographs both sides of pages, of varying sizes, some captioned, approx 148 in number, all appearing to be from his childhood and early years in Chile.
