Béla Bartók in New York City - at the end of 1941
from Béla Bartók Letters, page 317:
The only bright spot is my work at Columbia University: studying serbo-croatian [sic] folk-music material from really unique records, belonging to the Harvard University. But – hélas- this is only a temporary job and the work probably must remaine [sic] unfinished, so even there is mingled a bitter drop.
