Raymond F. Dvorak (1900-1982) was an American band director and music educator who spent much of his career as director of the University of Wisconsin bands. The Dvorak Papers covers the period from 1876 to 1987, with the bulk of the materials dating from 1960 to 1980. The collection consists of both personal and professional papers, including published and collected articles, correspondence, programs, memorabilia, and photographs related to Dvorak's work as a band director, particularly those documenting his efforts in memorializing John Philip Sousa.
