Born Morris Gitler in Poland in 1904, Mack Gordon was a very prolific songwriter and composer who created songs for stage and screen. He and Harry Warren won the Academy Award for Best Song in 1943.
The papers document the life and career of stage and screen songwriter Mack Gordon. They include business records such as correspondence, contracts and royalty statements; sheet music; a script for "Three Little Girls in Blue", photograph albums; a scrapbook of clippings; notes and writings (some appear to be Gordon's random thoughts for potential songs); a film; funeral materials; and a passport.
