JOHN PHILIP SOUSA
Black and white publicity photograph of John Philip Sosa standing in his dress uniform.
Photograph signed: "John Philip Sousa". B/w, 2½x4¼. Accompanied by typed letter (1p, 8¼x8¼, on letterhead of the Sousa Band) from its business manager of Sousa's band, dated 1899 November 29, authorizing use of the words of "Sons of Dear Norway" from his National Airs Book in an article for Werner's magazine. John Philip Sousa (1854-1932) is known chiefly for writing over 100 marches, including such classics as The Stars and Stripes Forever and The Washington Post, earning him the title of "The March King". Sousa, who had studied violin and trombone during his childhood, joined the U.S. Marine Band at age 13, playing with the group from 1867-1872. After later playing in popular orchestras, he returned in 1880 as director of the Marine Band, which is called the "President's Own". In addition to his many musical compositions, Sousa wrote five books, including three novels and an autobiography. Fine condition.
