Provenance

The materials in this collection were originally cataloged as Washingtoniana materials. They were removed from the reference stacks because of the unique nature of the materials in each volume. As of August 2006, only volumes 2 and 3 of the Washington Music Teachers Association (WMTA).

History

The WMTA was founded in 1934 with an objective of “the promotion of the professional interests of the Music Teachers of Washington and its vicinity, by encouraging good fellowship in the profession, advancing the base of sound musical instruction, by clarifying ethical problems and furthering the general musical activities of the community.”  It remains an organization in Washington, D.C. to this day.

The materials in this collection consist of newsletters, correspondence, photographs, clippings, programs, and ballots. The materials are bound in two volumes: Volume 2 covering the years 1940-1947 and Volume 3 covering the years 1947-1952.

Each year is separated by title sheets and begins with a photograph of the President of the Association.
