Notes

Abstract:
A two-volume (paperback) historical listing ("9,670 Patriotic Songs Published in the United States, 1914-1920, with More Than 600 Covers Illustrated") by retired philosophy professor and World War I sheet music collector BERNARD S. PARKER (McFarland and Company, Inc., Publishers - Jefferson, North Carolina and London, 2007). According to the book jacket: "This is a comprehensive catalog of the patriotic sheet music of World War I. The introductory text covers the sheet music publishing business of the time and describes how the music messages often paralleled Woodrow Wilson's policies. Nearly 10,000 songs are included with complete bibliographical data: title, authors of the lyrics and music when available, value based on auction prices and collector knowledge, publisher, folio size and cover description. Each entry in the catalog is assigned a letter and number for easy identification in the indexes. The letter is the first letter of the title of the song and the number is its place in that alphabetical list. Titles are arranged alphabetically. Included are 613 photos of outstanding sheet music covers." Author, Bernard S. Parker notes: "I am a retired college president who enjoys writing and traveling. My book on World War I Sheet Music was written under contract by the publisher because there was no book that listed all the American sheet music written about World War I. It was an interesting three year project that resulted in a one thousand page two volume work with over 500 illustrations." The two-volumes are dedicated "To my five grandsons - Parker Lee Knight, Mitchell Travis Parker, Harrison Brian Knight, Jack Wesley Parker and Clayton James Knight - May they have lives filled with music but never experience the horrors of war." A second set of the two-volume publication may be found in the general University of Florida POPULAR CULTURE COLLECTION/BELKNAP COLLECTION FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS monograph holdings under the call number: ML128.W2 P37 2007. This two-volume set donated to the University of Florida by BERNARD S. PARKER.
