Frank McGrann Collection
The Frank McGrann Collection primarily contains historic 78 rpm recordings, mostly of concert bands. Ensembles led by Arthur Pryor and John Philip Sousa are represented well, as well as discs by Conways Band. Orchestras and music for soloists are also included, particularly performances by Arthur Pryor and Herbert Clarke. The collection also contains some photographs, documents, band hats (believed to have been worn by John Philip Sousa), and printer's plates. The collection spans the years 1899-1948, and extends over 8 linear feet.
