JOHN PHILIP SOUSA
John Philip Sousa sends a letter discussing fraternities.
Autograph Letter signed: "John Philip Sousa", 1p, 8x10. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, 1916 June 10. On letterhead of Bellevue Stratford Hotel to Reverend Paul R. Hickok, Metropolitan Presbyterian Church, Washington. In full: "It is my belief that a membership in a fraternity endears the College to the student or alumnus, just as one's birthplace endears the State to the citizens. Humanity is prone to groupings. We show it in our religion, our patriotism and our politics at our fraternities. Very sincerely." John Philip Sousa (1854-1932) was Bandmaster of the U.S. Marine Band from 1880-1892, when he organized his own band and began touring the U.S. and overseas. He composed about 140 military marches, including "The Stars and Stripes Forever" (1896) as well as comic operas. Written on right 1/3 of sheet. Fine condition.
