Historical Notes

Some song lyrics and sheet music artwork produced during the late 19th and early 20th century contain negative stereotypes and portrayals of African Americans, Irish, and other ethnic groups. These songs and images reflect the attitudes and perspectives of the past and may be offensive to users. To exclude these pieces of sheet music from the digital collection would deprive scholars and the public the opportunity to learn about the past and would present an incomplete picture of society, popular culture, and music during this time period. The Ward Irish Music Archives presents these documents as part of the record of the past and does not endorse the views expressed in these materials.
