    approximately 11,000 items. 76 containers. 26.0 linear feet. -- Music Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C.

    Summary:

    The Harry Von Tilzer and H. Harold Gumm Papers consist of both personal and professional papers of composer and music publisher Harry Von Tilzer (1872-1946) and his brother, H. Harold Gumm (1881 or 82-1973), who was a lawyer, agent, and producer in the entertainment business. After having served as attorney for the Harry Von Tilzer Music Publishing Co. (HVTMPC) for several decades, Harold Gumm served as executor of Harry Von Tilzer's estate and took over the company when Von Tilzer died in 1946. This collection contains the records of the HVTMPC which are inextricably combined not only with Harry Von Tilzer's papers but also with Gumm's papers and those of his firm Goldie & Gumm. Von Tilzer's personal papers include correspondence, writings, legal and financial documents, and drafts of his autobiography. The HVTMPC materials primarily consist of music (manuscript and printed), lyrics (manuscript and typewritten), scripts, legal and financial records, and a catalog of works published by HVTMPC. Most of Gumm's subject files relate to his activities as an agent for many prominent black performers of the 1930s and 1940s. Materials relating to their brothers (music publisher Will Von Tilzer; songwriter Albert Von Tilzer; and Jules and Jack Von Tilzer, who both worked in the family business) also appear in the collection. In addition, the collection contains programs, photographs, and clippings.
