    Composer George Gershwin (1898-1937) and his lyricist brother Ira (1896-1983) wrote some of the most significant American popular songs of the first half of the twentieth century. After George's untimely death in 1937, Ira worked with many other notable composers and diligently kept his brother's legacy alive. After Ira's death, his wife, Leonore, created the Ira and Leonore S. Gershwin Trusts in 1987 to function as a philanthropic fund endowing organizations in areas such as the arts, education, and medical research. The Gershwin Trusts also handled day-to-day business concerning licensing and royalties, as well as innovating new Gershwin recording projects and new stage musicals. The Ira and Leonore S. Gershwin Trust materials include scores and parts, correspondence, photographs, programs, business and financial papers, clippings and serials, art work, posters, and promotional materials.
