In 1925 Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge (1864–1953) established the Coolidge Foundation at the Library of Congress, an unprecedented gift that ensured her support for contemporary music would continue for many generations. Coolidge’s passion was chamber music and to make chamber music available to all, she built at the Library of Congress an intimate, finely-tuned auditorium that bears her name.
