Date:
circa 1893-1965
Summary:
A New York bookseller, Warshaw assembled this collection over nearly fifty years. The Warshaw Collection of Business Americana: Forestry forms part of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Subseries 1.1: Subject Categories. The Subject Categories subseries is divided into 470 subject categories based on those created by Mr. Warshaw. These subject categories include topical subjects, types or forms of material, people, organizations, historical events, and other categories. An overview to the entire Warshaw collection is available here: Warshaw Collection of Business Americana
Scope and Contents:
This subject category- Forestry contains materials concerning forestry. The bulk of the materials were produced by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Forest Service in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Researchers looking for information on forestry particularly during the administration of Theodore Roosevelt will find this information useful.

Companies and Services include the Davey Tree Expert Co. and the United States Department of Agriculture Forest Service. There are several correspondence from 1925 regarding treatment of trees and a 1938 Fire Danger Reduction Policy Statement for the New England Hurricane Region. The Davey Tree Expert Company is located in Kent, Ohio and the USDA is in Washington, DC.

Several small publications from the American Forestry Association and the Forest History Society of Yale University are present. There are also some postage stamps with Smokey the Bear on them. Only the article from the Forest History Society of Yale University is dated (1965). In the oversized materials, there is a personal correspondence written on a form used to petition for a charter to the U.S. Forestry Service. Additional publications consist of books concerning forestry. The three dated materials were written by Gifford Pinchot, chief of the USDA Forest Service, around the turn of the 20th century. There is also an undated booklet called "How to Set out Trees and Shrubbery" compliments of The Youth's Companion in Boston, Massachusetts.

Forestry is a portion of the Business Ephemera Series of the Warshaw Collection of Business Americana, Accession AC0060 purchased from Isadore Warshaw in 1967. Warshaw continued to accumulate similar material until his death, which was donated in 1971 by his widow, Augusta. For a period after acquisition, related materials from other sources (of mixed provenance) were added to the collection so there may be content produced or published after Warshaw's death in 1969. This practice has since ceased.

Date:
1964
Summary:
The original manuscript for Coltrane's compositionA Love Supreme.
Scope and Contents:
The music manuscript is the original 1964 manuscript of A Love Supreme, a work that exalts the greatness, power, and love of God. The collection includes handwritten music, doodles, lyrics, and notes. A Love Supreme is thought to be one of the greatest jazz albums of all time.
Biographical / Historical:
John Coltrane was born September 23, 1926 in Hamlet, North Carolina. Surrounded and influenced by music from a young age, Coltrane trained in Philadelphia at Granoff Studios and the Ornstein School of Music. He went on to play in the U.S. Navy Band when he was called to military service during World War II.

When the war was over, Coltrane played with the likes of Jimmy Heath, the Eddie "CleanHead" Vinson Band, and Dizzy Gillespie. In 1958, he joined the Miles Davis Quintet and became famous for his three-on-one chord approach and "sheets of sound," a method of playing multiple notes a one time.

Coltrane formed his own quartet by 1960 with pianist McCoy Tyner, drummer Elvin Jones, and bassist Jimmy Garrison. It was with this group that he created his famous A Love Supreme, a work that discusses the greatness, power, and love of God. Coltrane believed that everyone should contribute positively to the world, and his way of doing so was creating positive thought patterns through his music.

Coltrane accumulated much recognition throughout his career, including a posthumous 1982 Grammy Award for Best Jazz Solo Performance for "Bye Bye Blackbird" and the organization's esteemed Lifetime Achievement Award. In 1995, he was honored by the United States Postal Service with a commemorative postage stamp. He also has a street named on the Universal Studios lot in his honor. Coltrane's former home has been turned into a National Historic Landmark to commemorate his influence on American culture.

Coltrane died of liver disease in July 1967. His music is still heard today in various avenues of popular culture, including movies and television shows. Coltrane and his wife Alice had one child, Ravi, a prominent jazz saxophonist.
