Sam DeVincent loved music and art and began collecting sheet music with lithographs at an early age.
Series 4: Songwriters: A "songwriter" for this series is defined as a composer, a lyricist, or both.
An overview to the entire DeVincent collection is available here: Sam DeVincent Collection of Illustrated American Sheet Music.
Scope and Contents note:
A "songwriter" for this series is defined as a composer, a lyricist, or both. The songwriters included in this online finding aid are arranged alphabetically in the Biography of Songwriters section and alphabetically in the Name and Select Title Index.
The song sheets associated with each songwriter in this series are generally arranged in the following order: General Songs; Ethnic Songs; Armed Conflict Songs or other Topical Headings; Ragtime; Instrumental; Musical Theater Production Songs; Motion Picture Production Songs; Specialized Song Sheets/Editions; Professional/Artist Copy Song Sheets; and Folios/Volumes. Songs of four or more editions (multiple editions) are usually placed in individual folders and listed separately under the appropriate category, i.e., General Songs, Topical songs, etc. Copyright dates listed in the Container List represent the latest date on any given song sheet, i.e., a song originally published in 1906, but copyrighted in 1946, will show the date 1946.
In the Container List the word "Contains" in a descriptive entry identifies a folder that contains only the song sheet titles specified. For example, Subseries 4.1, folder B "contains" three song sheets and only those three are contained in that folder. The word "Includes" in a descriptive entry identifies a folder that holds not only the song sheet title(s) named but also other song sheet title(s) not specified in the Container List. For example, folder E of subseries 4.1 "includes" (or specifies) three song sheets ("Magic Moments," "Sad Sack," and "Warm and Tender"), but, in addition, folder E contains fourteen other song sheets that are not specified.
Variations in the size of the sheet music in this series may indicate its publication date. Large song sheets-approximately 11" x 13"- were superseded in April 1919, when publishers adopted a new "standard" or "regular" size for song sheets-9 1/4" x 12 1/4"-as recommended by the National Association of Sheet Music Dealers. The probable motivation was that smaller song sheets were cheaper to produce--a conservation effort prompted by World War I.
Titles of Musical Theater Production Songs and Motion Picture Production Songs are in capital letters. Individual song titles are within quotation marks. Portraits of the artist or artists that contributed to a song's success are featured on many song sheets. Songs are filed alphabetically, by title, within each folder.
Dates after the songwriter's name in the Biography of Songwriters section of this Register refer to the songwriter's birth and death dates. Dates after a songwriter's name in the Container List of this Register refer to the dates of the song sheets in this collection for that songwriter. Where two or more songwriters were a notable team over an extended period of time, their collaboration is noted in the Biography of Songwriters and included in the Container List.
The dates in the Container List represent the latest copyright year on the song sheets. The dates are not necessarily the same as the year of the productions. Copyright dates in the Container List represent the latest date on any given piece of sheet music, i.e., a song originally published in 1906, but re-copyrighted in 1946, will show the date 1946.

The house, a popular Better Homes and Garden plan known as the "Maple Forest House", was built in 1997 and the first landscaping was put in that year. The two and one-fifth acre property is on a steep slope with rocky soil and surrounded by deep woods, while the garden and koi pond are close to the house with additional features further out in the lawn. The owners feel they live in the woods and must accommodate wildlife in their style of living and gardening. The lawn has not been treated with pesticides for ten or more years so in addition to grasses, ferns and mosses there are wildflowers and common weeds, including violets, white clover, dayflower, ground ivy, dandelions, smart weed, chicory, fleabane and thistle. Sunflowers and milkweed are encouraged to self-seed and provide food for birds and butterflies. Other wildlife seen on the property includes bears, foxes, chipmunks, rabbits, squirrels, coyotes, possums, skunks, bobcats, hawks, eagles, turkeys and deer that have lyme-disease ticks. The owners grow a small vegetable garden in plastic pots on one of the decks but are able to grow herbs in a raised bed next to the house. Annual flowers are grown in clay pots and hanging baskets, out of reach for digging dogs. The original koi pond was enlarged in 2015, a massive stone slab was installed as a bridge, and net screens attached to saplings and a plastic heron at the pond's edge keep predators away from the fish.
The garden owner is a former Garden Club of America club president.
Persons associated with the garden include Robert P. Powell (garden and pond design, 1997); Aquascapes of Connecticut (koi pond re-design and installation, 2015); Dan Isakson (lawn care, 2011- ); Dexter Cheney (woodlands and woodlot management, 2005- ).

The Children's Area was a magnet to young visitors during the Bicentennial Festival. The Hill and Sand area provided the three essential elements of earth, sand, and water, inviting children to transform the landscape with castles and forts, quarries and caves, as dreams emerged from the blank sand canvas. In the dirt-floored Marble Ring, parents could teach their children, and children could bring their parents up to date on the ways of aggies, steelies, puries, and cats' eyes. The Game Ring had a tree club-house and materials for building on additions; games of all sorts were also played here: tug of war, jump rope, squirt gun fights, four square, hop scotch, football.
In the Crafts Tents, the articles useful in play were constructed; children and adults made doll houses and dolls, folded paper cootie catchers, soap box derby cars, wooden sailboats. The Folk Swap Tent was for the exchange of secret languages and riddles, counting out rhymes and ghost stories. Here, costumes and puppets were also fashioned for the Stage, where children from local schools and clubs shared their performance traditions - clapping games, circuses, stunts, and parades. Sometimes adults taught the traditional games and playparties that they remembered so lovingly from their own childhoods.
The program was coordinated by Kate Rinzler, assisted by Saucie Melnicove.

Mark Raymond Harrington was born on the campus of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor on July 6, 1882. He received his BS in 1907 and his MA in 1908 from Columbia University, where he studied under Franz Boas. He met George Heye while working at Covert's Indian store in New York in 1908 and Heye hired him shortly thereafter. Harrington spent from 1908-1911 visiting and collecting from tribes in the east and Midwest for Heye. From 1911-1915 Harrington was assistant curator at the University of Pennsylvania Museum. From 1916-1917 he conducted archeological surveys in Cuba and Arkansas, after which he spent a short time in the U.S. Army during the First World War. After his return in 1919 he started a series of archeological surveys in Tennessee, Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Nevada, and Texas. Harrington worked for George G. Heye as an archaeologist, ethnologist, field collector, and curator, primarily along the eastern seaboard, in the south, Midwest, west, Cuba and Ecuador, from 1908 to 1928. He then joined the staff of the Southwest Museum as curator until his retirement in 1964. He died in San Fernando, California on June 30, 1971. Harrington is the author of many books and several hundred articles. A partial bibliography can be found in the Mark Raymond Harrington manuscript collection in the archives of the National Museum of the American Indian, Cultural Resource Center, Suitland, Maryland.
