Several months ago while investigating surplus furnishings of the Corbin Library, pending its demolition, I learned of the contents of a file cabinet which contained the collection of the old Webster Music Club. An article in the Webster Times May 8, 1958 reported on the Golden Anniversary of the club which had been organized May 1, 1908. The club has long since ceased to exist and its collection - consisting of music books and scores, along with a few whistles - was slated for demolition along with the building, absent any outside interest. My timing was fortuitous and I managed to convey the collection to the WDHS museum. Interested parties are welcome to inquire and obtain portions of the collection for personal or organizational use. It is not (any longer) indexed in any fashion, but is fun to paw through!
