BOXES 21-24, SHEET MUSIC

Dr. Waack donated an extensive collection of sheet music to Special Collections. These range in date from 1892 to 2005, the bulk of which were published in the 1920s and 1940s. The piano/vocal scores consist of popular songs of the times, movie and Broadway show tunes, hymns, patriotic songs from both World Wars, and a few piano pieces in the more classical vein.

Because many of the songs were published before Dr. Waack was born, it is believed this music may have been owned by his mother or grandmother.
