John Phillips Sousa Comes Alive at High 12


If you missed Illini High 12 April meeting, you missed an outstanding presentation by Professor Scott Schwartz of the University of Illinois Sousa Archives Library. Scott talked about the history of John Phillips Sousa, especially around the time of WW1 and his influence on American music.

Did you know that John Phillips Sousa's collection is right here on the UI campus? 

Sousa was a member of Hiram-Takoma Lodge No. 10 F.A.A.M. of the District of Columbia and the Almas Shriners both in Washington DC.
