This collection consists of published sheet music, manuscripts, concert programs, press clippings, photographs, and correspondence
collected by or addressed to Los Angeles area vocalist Mary Green Pauloo, who worked closely with composer and educator Mary
Carr Moore and was involved in Moore's and other local music clubs. The collection has a strong emphasis on the decades between
1930 and 1960.
Mary Green Pauloo was a vocalist and was active in several music clubs in Los Angeles, most notably the Mary Carr Moore Manuscript
Club (later the Manuscript Club of Los Angeles) and The Dominant Music Club, of which Pauloo was a president. Pauloo and Mary
Carr Moore had a close personal and professional relationship, and Pauloo performed in Moore's operas, notably
Flutes of Jade Happiness,
David Rizzio, and
The Flaming Arrow, and performed her other compositions in concert. Pauloo personally knew many of the composers in this collection, who were
involved in musical competitions organized by the Manuscript Club or the Pauloos. Most of the sheet music manuscripts were
mailed to Pauloo and her husband by their composers, and bear personal inscriptions to Mary Green Pauloo.
