About the Book

Political historians have traditionally interpreted the people and events of each presidential era by studying books, periodicals, letters, diaries and speeches. One source of printed material that has not received much scholarly attention is published music, much of which has been all but lost in the archives of libraries and museums. These two volumes of Presidential Sheet Music present an exhaustive listing of presidential-related music in all printed forms, with information on each piece.

About the Author(s)

Danny O. Crew has been collecting political memorabilia since 1975, specializing in political music. His personal collection exceeds 11,000 pieces. Two-thirds of the music documented in this catalogue is from his personal collection. He has written a number of articles on the subject and has been featured on ABCs Good Morning America. He is also the author of American Political Music (2006), Ku Klux Klan Sheet Music (2003) and Suffragist Sheet Music (2002). He currently serves as City Manager for the City of Miami Gardens, Florida.
