Mabel Rosenthal Collection on Edwin Franko Goldman
Edwin Franko Goldman (1878-1956) was a bandmaster, author, composer, and founding member and first president of the American Bandmasters Association. He received his musical training at the National Conservatory in New York, and from 1899-1909 he held the position of solo cornet with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra. In 1911, he formed the Goldman Band, and by 1918, the band was performing a free summer concert series, which later became known as the Guggenheim Concert Series. Goldman conducted this series until his death in 1956. This collection was compiled by Mabel Rosenthal, a family friend of Goldman's, and consists of newspaper clippings, programs, correspondence, photographs, medals, and scores related to Goldman's career as a conductor and composer.
