The collection consists of scores and parts for film, television, and popular music, by composer Charles Fox.
Charles Fox (b. October 30, 1940) composed music for over fifty television films and motion pictures, a ballet score, A Song
for Dead Warriors, and an orchestral suite, A Thousand Heroes. He graduated from the High School of Music and Art in Manhattan,
and later studied in Paris with Nadia Boulanger. Fox then went on to compose and arrange for Tito Puente and Ray Barretto.
He wrote station break music for The Tonight Show before scoring his first film, The Incident. He then studied electronic
music at Columbia University with Vladimir Ussachevsky, leading him to become one of the first to compose electronic scores
for film. He won an Emmy Award for his score to the television film, Love, American Style, a Grammy for his hit, "Killing
Me Softly With His Song", and a Young New York Film Critic's Award for "I Got a Name" from The Last American Hero. Fox earned
two Oscar nominations for "Ready to Take a Chance Again" and "Richard's Window." Other credits include film scores for Nine
to Five, and The Gods Must Be Crazy, and the themes for the television shows Little Darling, The Love Boat, Happy Days, Laverne
& Shirley, and The Paper Chase.
