A lifelong film and theater fan, Donald J. Stubblebine began collecting sheet music from stage and film musicals in about 1970. He was an often sought expert in stage and film sheet music and wrote guidebooks on early Broadway sheet music, Broadway sheet music, and cinema sheet music.
The collection consists of sheet music for stage and screen musicals, television programs, and Big Bands; also other ephemeral items such as theater programs, reviews and posters; and a small number of costume design drawings.
