    Bush family papers by Bush (Family :( Archival Material )
    in English and held by 1 library worldwide
    Contains documentation on Antone DeSant, an immigrant from the Cape Verde Islands, who became a naturalized US citizen in 1872. There are also papers concerning property that DeSant bought in 1840, and an inventory of his estate, produced at the time of his death in 1886. Series 2 consists of Aaron Bush's death certificate. Because the bulk of the papers in this collection concerns William Bush senior, the famed organist from New London, Conn., this collection is most useful to researchers needing information on his life. Aside from the fact that Bush was a famed organist, an additional fact concerning his life and fame was that he was an African-American, who became successful long before the Civil Rights Movement of the 1960s. Documentary artifacts in this collection related to his musical career include a recital program, school diplomas and certificates, and biographical sketches. Photographs and a scrapbook from this collection provide graphic information on the Bush family (and are catalogued separately). There is no sheet music in this collection, and only one recital program. This series also includes mortgage deeds. Lastly, there are three identification cards for William Herbert Bush, junior. Schools and churches represented include: Manual Training and Industrial School of New London, Conn., Faust School, New London, Conn., Second Congregational Church, New London, Conn., and First Baptist Church, New London, Conn
