An alumnus of Johns Hopkins University, Lester S. Levy had a profound love of music and, in 1976, presented his collection of over 29,000 pieces of sheet music to the Milton S. Eisenhower Library at his alma mater. Spanning from 1780 to 1980, the collection is especially strong in music related to military conflicts, the circus, and minstrels. The staff at the Eisenhower Library have devoted a great deal of time to digitizing the entire collection, placing it online for the general public to view and enjoy. Visitors may browse through the collection by subject headings, such as patriotic songs, transportation, juvenile, or artists. Additionally, visitors may perform a detailed search of the entire online database by title, subject, place of publication, composer, or the first line of composition. On the site, visitors may also choose to read a brief biographical essay about the late Mr. Levy and take a look at a detailed explanation of how to best use the collection.
