    Scope and Content of Collection

    The Memorial Library of Music at Stanford University has been made possible by the interest and generosity of Mr. and Mrs. George T. Keating and the painstaking and devoted efforts of Professor Nathan van Patten.
    The Memorial Library of Music has quite fittingly been conceived as a part of Stanford's memorial to her honored alumni who gave their lives in World War II. Their sacrifice has also been marked by the establishment of the University's Gold Star Scholarships for their children and by engraving their names forever on the Roll of Honor in beautiful Memorial Hall. The completion of this first volume of the catalogue affords occasion to express the University's deep appreciation of the contribution which Mr. and Mrs. Keating have made.
    J.E. Wallace Sterling November 8, 1950.
