Non-Western Instruments
The small group of Asian instruments that came to Yale with the Belle Skinner Collection has been steadily augmented with further examples from Asia, Africa and South America.  The acquisition of the Robyna Neilson Ketchum Collection of Bells greatly increased the Collection’s holdings of idiophones from all over the world.  Future acquisition policy will be directed to growth in this area.
