Introduction

 

The Joseph Bistayi Hungarian Sound Recordings Collection consists of twenty-two (78 rpm) recordings of Hungarian dances and Gypsy melodies.

 

The recordings were donated to The Ward M. Canaday Center by Mr. Joseph Bistayi, through Dr. Richard Perry, in connection with the Center’s Marge Perry collection of Hungarian materials.

 

Mr. Bistayi is of Hungarian heritage and grew up in Toledo’s Hungarian community of Birmingham where he still resides.  Because of their love for Hungarian music, Mr. Bistayi and his wife collected these recordings through the years.
