TitleSC78 Carl Busch Recognition Association Scrapbook Finding Aid
AbstractCarl Busch, musician, composer, arranger, and conductor, was born March 19, 1862, in Denmark. He came to Kansas City in 1887 and spent many years in the community providing musical leadership. Busch was known internationally, being knighted by both the King of Norway and of Denmark. He died in 1943.

This collection consists of one leather-bound scrapbook assembled by the Carl Busch Recognition Association and the Gamma chapter of the Lambda Phi Delta sorority in connection with a Busch recognition concert held November 25, 1923. It contains replies from people who accepted an invitation to be honorary members of the committee. This event honored Carl Busch. Included in the scrapbook are letters, newspaper clippings, a photograph of Mr. Busch, telegrams, and lists. A special feature added at a later time includes many congratulatory letters which were sent to him in recognition of the award given to him by the Fine Arts College at the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1934.
