Historical Note

The career of Clifford V. Buttelman (April 8, 1886 - September 8, 1970) started with forays into journalism, music publishing, and music instrument sales, before finding him named as the first full-time Executive Secretary of the Music Educators National Conference (MENC), now known as the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), in 1930. A 1907 graduate of the Ferris Institute (now Ferris State University), Buttelman also served as the Editor of the Music Educators Journal, MENC's official magazine, until 1960. After World War II, Buttelman was cited for his service on the sub-committee on music of the Army and Navy Committee on Welfare and Recreation. He was also part of a joint committee to establish a standardized version of "The Star Spangled Banner" and to encourage its use in schools. Following his retirement from the position of MENC's Director of Publications of the Conference in 1962, Buttelman retired to his home in Horton, MI.

Scope and Contents of the Collection

The Clifford V. Buttelman Papers cover the period from 1845 to 1980; the bulk of the materials date from 1948 to 1966. The collection consists of materials related to Buttelman's career as first executive secretary of the Music Educators National Conference (MENC), now known as the National Association for Music Education (NAfME), and managing editor and director of publications of the Music Educators Journal, as well as his personal life. Materials include writings by and about Buttelman; correspondence written and received by Buttelman and his colleagues; business documents; bound volumes of Music Educators Journal; news clippings; photographs; and writings related to the history of MENC.

Custodial History and Acquisition Information

Three boxes of the Clifford V. Buttelman Papers were donated as part of an official records submission to the Music Educators National Conference Historical Center at the University of Maryland in 1973. The bulk of the collection came in one shipment at some point between 1988 and 1989 from the Estate of Eulalia Buttelman, Clifford's wife.
