Description:

Roderic C. Knight came to Oberlin College as a researcher and professor in the field of organology, or the scientific study of musical instruments. He had begun collecting a range of instruments when he was in high school, and he was rather proud of his diverse collection. In 2008, Knight donated his personal collection of instruments to Oberlin. This digital collection allows users to learn about and view images of all the instruments. The site includes a search engine and several menus that give users access to instruments organized by name, country or area of origin, and materials used in their construction. First-time visitors should start by clicking on the Central America area, as they will find eight delightful images of some wonderful clay flutes there.
