Founded in 1941, the Maryland Music Educators Association (MMEA) is the professional association for the school music teachers of Maryland. Its mission is to give Marylands music teachers opportunities for professional development, encourage excellence in both teachers and students, and to be an advocate for music education within Maryland schools. The MMEA Archives covers the period from 1904 to 2008 with the bulk of the materials falling between 1970 and 1990. The collection consists of board meeting minutes, correspondence and memoranda, financial materials, materials of officers including presidents of the organization, membership materials, documents relating to events sponsored by the organization, the quarterly publication The Maryland Music Educator, as well as audio and visual materials relating to All-State groups selected by the organization. Included materials document the relationship between MMEA and the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), as well as other similar organizations.
