Description

#DECLASSIFIED
Women Composers Hiding in Plain Sight

Melissa Wertheimer, Music Division

You’ve read our blog – now, see our sources! A Music Reference Specialist’s archival adventure led to the identification of five American women composers in a 1924 glass negative (including Phyllis Fergus, Ethel Glenn Hier, Amy Beach, Harriet Ware and Gena Branscombe). Dig deeper into early 20th-century letters, music manuscripts, sheet music, concert programs, and music magazines to learn about unique women in America’s music history.
