BOX A1, C1 Music Manuscripts, 1880-1943 (bulk 1880-1920)
This series consists of holograph and copyist manuscripts, the majority of which is music for Fats Waller's musical Early to Bed (1943), piano works, libretti, and numerous unidentified sketches and lead sheets. The series also contains music from other musicals, including Victor Herbert’s My Golden Girl (1920) and Oui Madame (1920), as well as Hugo Felix’s Sweetheart Shop (1920). In addition, there are scores for early versions of Samuel Barber's Canzone, Op. 38a, manuscript scores for Franz Liszt's "Zum Grabe and Von der Wiege bis zum Grabe," and a holograph transcription of Samuel Francis Smith's hymn "America." Irving Berlin, Ferde Grofé, and Andy Razaf are among the other composers whose works are represented in this series.
