Library of Congress acquires rare musical theater manuscripts

The Library of Congress has recently received two important gifts of manuscripts to add to its Music Division American Musical Theater collections. The first is a collection of lyric sketches by Lorenz Hart, the lyricist who collaborated with Richard Rodgers between 1920 and 1943 and wrote dozens of enduring standards, such as "My Funny Valentine," "The Lady Is a Tramp," and "Bewitched." The second collection, of Oscar Hammerstein II manuscripts, comes to the Library as a gift from Hammerstein's biographer, author and record producer Hugh Fordin
