Louisville sheet music collection

 Collection
Identifier: 2005_033-UA
Consists of sheet music and scores of works either printed in Louisville, Kentucky, or relating to Louisville in some way. Many titles by Mildred Hill, best known for co-authoring "Happy Birthday" with her sister, are included in this collection, as are several pieces by Clifford Shaw, a composer for a local radio and television station. Several compositions by Ernesto Natiello, including "Fontaine Ferry Park March" and "We Can, We Will, in Louisville" form part of the collection, as do several works by Julius Meininger. Numerous other composers and lyricists are represented in this collection, as well. These materials were given to the University Archives when the Louisville Free Public Library cleaned out its history area.
