W. C. HANDY
W. C. Handy signs sheet music to "The Memphis Blues" to a fan.
Sheet Music inscribed and signed: "To Moe Gale Esqr/who has done so much/for music/W.C. Handy/4-29/46", 6p, 9x12. "The Memphis Blues", by W.C. Handy. © 1912 W.C. Handy, renewed 1940. Signed on cover. Musician/composer William Christopher Handy (1873-1958), known as the "Father of the Blues", profoundly influenced American music. Although the blues evolved from a long musical tradition, Handy as a music publisher in the 1920s was the first to codify and publish songs known as "the blues". Born in Alabama, Handy made Memphis his home for many years. He originally wrote "The Memphis Blues", with different lyrics and title, as a campaign song for a candidate for mayor of Memphis. His other works include the "St. Louis Blues" and "Beale Street Blues". Frayed edges. Some paper separation along cover's center fold. Adequate contrast.
