World War I Sheet Music from the James Francis Driscoll Collection of American Sheet Music

The World War I titles in the Driscoll Collection provide a superb cross-section not only of the music industry but of the contributions made by hundreds of “kitchen table” musicians during the war. The covers and contents reflect the public perceptions of and responses to America’s evolving relationship with this international military conflict between 1914 and 1918. This collection provides invaluable insights into American life during and after the Great War.
