Article excerpt

The University of North Texas Music Library has acquired several noteworthy collections in recent months. Received as a gift from A1 and Anna Julian in November 2015, the Woody Herman Society Collection consists of the official records of the Woody Herman Society; it also includes an extensive set of photo albums, scrapbooks, and memorabilia (as well as Woody Herman's music stand). In that same month, the library purchased a small collection music manuscripts and dye-line copies of music by Duke Ellington, Johnny Hodges, Cat Anderson, Lou Carter, and Paul Gonsalves from J&J Lubrano Music Antiquarians.

In March of 2016, composer and former UNT College of Music faculty member Larry Austin donated his extensive collection (comprising personal papers, compositions, and sound recordings) to the Music Library. In April, the library received the band library of Guy Lombardo's Royal Canadians as a gift of director A1 Pierson. Most recently, the library received donations from Mrs. Madeleine Forte, widow of the late music theorist Allen Forte, which complement the existing Forte collection and focus on Mrs. Forte's own performing career, and that of her aunt, Sonia Chalon. In June, the UNT Music Library purchased additional correspondence and other materials from Chalon via J&J Lubrano.
