Henry L. Cady, professor emeritus in music education and former chair of music department at the University of Delaware, Newark, with research partner and fellow Ohio State University colleague, Erwin H. Schneider, headed the Schneider-Cady USOE Project E-016, Evaluation and Synthesis of Research Studies Relating to Music Education, funded by the U.S. Department of Health, Education and Welfare. The project is a compilation of a majority of the theses, dissertations, and articles written between 1930 and 1962 on studies relating to music education. The collection includes an extensive bibliographic card file collection organized by categories such as "The Teacher," "The Student," The Teaching-Learning Process," "Higher Education," and subcategories such as "music education," "music therapy," "theory" and "musicology," in addition to correspondence with other music education scholars related to the Music Education Research Council (MERC), formed in the mid 1960s, of which Cady was project coordinator. MERC was formed in conjunction with Cady's second Department of Education project, USOE Project 6-13488, A Conference of Research in Music Education, for which the E-016 bibliography was expanded. The collection also includes copies of the final publications, Evaluation and Synthesis of Research Studies Relating to Music Education (1965), and Final Report: A Conference of Research in Music Education (1967).
