Scope and Content of Collection

Papers of band historian and record collector Frederick P. Williams. The bulk of the collection is comprised of research materials on many famous early military and marching bands (Sousa, Pryor, etc.) as well as the lesser known "ethnic" bands led by Giuseppe Creatore and others. The collection contains research materials on early military and ethnic marching band recordings, record "want" and exchange lists, correspondence with other researchers, cylinder and 78 rpm disc catalogs, and auction lists and discographies. The collection also includes Musicians Protection Agency directories, rare concert programs and posters, clippings, flyers, early photos of soloists and bands, conference and events files, and artifacts, including record needles, audio recordings, a Sousa Band uniform, and other items related to early band performances and dance hall recitals. Also included are historical deeds and maps related to the city of Philadelphia and its environs, and Williams family photos, correspondence, and artifacts.

The collection has been divided into the following series: I. Artist files, II. Band files, III. Articles by F.P. Williams, IV. University of Iowa Special Collections: Chautauqua Collection, V.
