Allen Music Library Confederate Sheet Music Collection


In 1987, the Warren D. Allen Music Library acquired a large collection of Confederate sheet music imprints. The collection includes more than 300 items which comprise approximately 40% of all sheet music titles known to have been published in the Confederacy. FSU alumnus John G. Rivest's A descriptive bibliography of confederate sheet-music imprints held by The Florida State University (ML125.C6 R58 1990) describes the contents of the collection in detail. In addition, Frank W. Hoogerwerf's Confederate sheet music imprints (ML125.C6 H66 1984) is a thorough catalog of all existing confederate era sheet music imprints.
