The Hupert P. Henderson Collection
Hubert P. Henderson directed the band program at the University of Maryland, College Park from 1955-1965. Under his leadership the program underwent a series of significant changes, including a closer association with the School of Music and the formation of the Symphonic Band. Henderson was elected to the American Bandmasters' Association (ABA) in 1961 and resigned from the association in 1968. During his membership, he was integral to the establishment of the ABA Journal, a scholarly peer-reviewed publication, and served as the first director of the ABA Research Center. He made arrangements for the 1965 ABA Conference, held in College Park. The collection contains material related to his ABA work - especially the establishment of the Journal - during his tenure at the University of Maryland.
