Abstract:

Mayhew Lester Lake (also known by the pseudonym Lester Brockton) was an American composer, conductor, editor and arranger. Beginning in 1913, Lake was the editor-in-chief of the band and orchestra department at the music publisher Carl Fischer, a position he would hold for 35 years. Many of the manuscripts in the collection were used for Lakes sixteen-piece brass concert band, the Symphony in Gold, which he conducted for NBC Radio.
