Get to Know Us

 

This collection presents a selection of sheet music from the extensive holdings of the Carl H. Harris Music Collection at the Sagamore Conservatory of Music. The Harris Music Collection includes over 10,000 pieces of sheet music from American popular music dating between 1900-1970. The items presented in the digital collection highlight the wide range of sheet music from both a genre and chronological perspective.

Carl H. Harris (1925-1998) was an active musicologist and music history scholar at Sagamore State University. He began collecting sheet music at an early age mainly for the cover art, and continued throughout his life. Following his retirement in 1990, Mr. Harris volunteered at the Conservatory Library, and founded a highly attended annual lecture series. Upon his passing in 1998, Mr. Harris donated his vast collection to the Conservatory.

THE DIGITAL PROJECT

The images were scanned at the Sagamore Conservatory Library using flatbed scanners. The resulting digital master files in TIFF format are stored at the Conservatory Library. Access copies in PDF format were created from the TIFF files and uploaded into CONTENTdm software for Web delivery. High resolution digital images can be ordered using the online Image Order form.
