Scope and Contents of the Materials
This collection documents Purdue University's musical organizations including the Choral Society, Glee Club, Symphony Orchestra, and University bands. Materials include song books, scrapbook, programs, sheet music, and record albums. Includes information on well-known Purdue songs, such as "Hail Purdue," as well as lesser-known Purdue songs performed at convocations, football games against Indiana University, and related events. Some late 19th century song books not specific to Purdue but presumably used at various Purdue religious services, convocations, and events have been retained with the collection, as well as two military related song books published in the 1940s.
