BOX 1-297, 332-370, 372, 374-383, 392-399 Show Music, 1880-1987
Music from different types of show comprise this series. While musicals represent the bulk of the music, there is also music from films, documentaries, television shows (including cartoons and programs for children), operettas, ice shows, plays, and two World's Fairs. Some of these shows were successful, such as My Fair Lady, but most were not: they closed in tryouts, after barely emerging on Broadway, or were never even produced at all.

Most of the music is manuscript scores, piano-vocal scores, vocal scores, parts, sketches, and lyric sheets in the hands of composers, lyricists, and copyists. Occasionally correspondence, notes, and lists are included.
Arranged alphabetically by show title and song title therein.
