Thread Name: School Songbook Index PermaThread
Subject: Index: Songs of the Campus
Another stretch on the "school songbooks" category, but there are too many "Index" threads here for me to pick a better one for "College Songs" so I'll put my latest find here. Feel free to move it to a more appropriate place if it works better in another thread.

Not particularly old or even "classic" but with a snatch-sampling of what might have been sung at US campuses ca the 1930s (?). A few songs for which only texts are given are generally adjacent to scored pieces with a "tune of" reference. Since quite a few songs of the kind are to the tune of others of the same ilk, the music for "just like" tunes may be as useful as the "words" associated with a particular U., for those with an interest in such stuff. Scores generally 4-part, suitable for vocal harmony but probably sufficient for piano accompaniments for the average choir accompanist.

Several of the songs have notations of "by permission of ..." but don't clearly indicate whether the source giving permission was an author, composer, or © holder. Clues more than info for sourcing(?).

A personal "curiosity" is one song "from my own alma mudder" that was claimed to be "lost" and could NOT BE FOUND at the Institute ca 1958. Fragments were found in a couple of "frat books" but no complete verse(s). I had not noticed that it's in this book until I spotted it during scanning for my digital archive.

As usual, my "archive PDF" is too large for easy transmittal, at about 137 MB. The whole book could probably be made small enough for email, if someone wanted it enough to put up with my whining, or individual songs could be fairly easily extracted to make printable (PDF or JPG perhaps) copies of a few pages if there's a need.
