Harry and Sara Lepman Collection, 1880-1945
The Harry and Sara Lepman Collection consists of American sheet music, mostly songs, collected by dentist Harry Lepman (1904-1970). Dating from the 1880s to the end of the second World War, the music was part of a larger collection of American political memorabilia assembled during Dr. Lepman's lifetime; non-music items were donated to the Smithsonian. Most songs in the collection were composed to rally support for military efforts in the Spanish-American War, World War I, and World War II, however some titles represent war protests. Many items in the collection boast colorful cover art.
