Renowned Italian Operatic Tenor Enrico Caruso (1873-1921) toured widely visiting exotic locales and developing relationships around the world during his career. This collection contains postcards sent to Caruso from friends around the world, as well as postcards Caruso collected for himself. The postcard collection is from Vanderbilt University’s Special Collections and is part of the Caruso materials acquired by the late Francis Robinson, a Vanderbilt graduate, assistant manager of the Metropolitan Opera and biographer of the tenor.
