Series III: Sheet Music (Non-Irish), 1847-1946, 1847-1946

Scope and Content Note

Series III: Sheet Music (Non-Irish), 1847-1946 consists of pieces of sheet music that do not specifically pertain to Irish America but are nonetheless significant examples from the vaudeville and Tin Pan Alley era. These range in date from circa 1847 (Music of the Ethopian Serenaders) to 1946 (  Broomstick Buckaroo). Of particular interest are songs from the minstrelsy tradition, many with offensive representations of African-Americans on their covers —  Four Little Blackberries (Box 1, Folder 18);  Moon, the Coon, and the Little Octoroon (Box 2, Folder 2) — and non-Irish songs produced by some of the major songwriting teams represented in Series I, such as  O! Sing to Me (Box 2, Folder 9) with a portrait of the “Hibernian Prima Donna,” soprano Catherine Hayes (1818-1861), or  Turn Back the Universe and Give Me Yesterday (Box 2, Folder 18), by the songwriting team of J. Keirn Brennan and Ernest R. Ball.
