Abstract:

The collection consists of the working papers of the Sub-committee. In addition, the collection contains some related materials that were given to the Library of Congress Music Division on June 24, 1943, by the Industrial Service Division, Bureau of Public Relations, War Department, Washington, D.C. Before the collection was processed these War Department materials, which were designated "for War Collection, Music Division," were interfiled among the Sub-committee's papers.

The bulk of the collection consists of an alphabetically arranged correspondence and subject file. Present are letters from original members of the sub-committee including Fred Birnbach, Secretary of the American Federation of Musicians; C. V. Buttelman, Executive Secretary of the Music Educators National Conference; music publisher, Harry Fox; and Noble Sissle, President of the Negro Actors Guild of America, Inc. In addition, there are copies of letters to such well-known musical personalities of the era as Aaron Copland, Leonard Feist, Oscar Hammerstein 2nd, Jerome Kern, Erich Leinsdorf, Alan Lomax and Walter Toscanani. A subseries of correspondence represents requests made of well-known artists, cartoonists, and other famous personalities, asking that they contribute drawings to illustrate music slides projected at soldier sing-alongs; included are the responses of many of those contacted, such as Al Capp, Bing Crosby, Norman Rockwell, and James Thurber. Another subseries of correspondence addressed to member publishing companies of the Music Publishers' Protective Association, Harry Fox, General Manager, from servicemen requesting complimentary sheet music, is included in the collection. Of special interest are the lists of best selling recordings during the war years and a collection of "Army Hit Kits," pamphlet-size song books that were distributed to servicemen. The collection also includes photostat copies and draft versions of the 1945 Navy Song Book.
