Biographical Note

Established in 1994 as the Sousa Archives for Band Research and renamed the Sousa Archives and Center for American Music in January 2004.  The Center's mission supports and facilitates research, education, and public engagement by preserving and providing access to the documentary evidence of this country's music and fine arts heritage.  Prior to 1994 the archives was referred to as the Sousa Library and Museum, and was managed by the University Bands.  In 1994 responsibility for the care of the paper records was transferred to the University Library and in 2003 the responsibility for the preservation of the music instruments and artifacts was transferred to the Library.
