Series II: Songsters and Song Albums, 1863-1960, 1863-1960

Scope and Content Note

Series II: Songsters and Song Albums, 1863-1960 consists of songsters (songbooks) and song albums containing both Irish and Irish-American content. These range in date from 1863’s Irish Song Album with Various Artists to  Irish Favorites (1960), with the majority published between 1900 and 1940. There are a number of undated examples, especially among the pocket-sized songsters which most likely were published in the middle of the nineteenth century. Many of the items in this series illustrate stereotyped depictions of the Irish and other ethnic groups in the nineteenth century. Most are in excellent condition and many contain handwritten music, annotations, and signatures. The songsters in particular lend themselves to a comparison of nineteenth-century stereotypes of the Irish as well as Jewish, German (Gus Williams  Sdill I Don’t Vas Happy Songster, Box 5, Folder 6), and African-American (Harry Pell’s  Ebony Songster, Box 5, Folder 4) figures.
