George M. Cohan Collection
The Edward B. Marks Music Co. Collection on George M. Cohan documents the career of one of the 20th century’s most prolific theatrical artists. Born in 1878, George Michael Cohan joined his parents’ vaudeville act in infancy. His first full-length production opened on Broadway when he was just 23, and for the next 40 years he wrote, composed, directed, produced, or starred in over 100 Broadway productions. Thanks to a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities for Humanities Collections and Reference Resources, the Museum is engaged in digitizing over 70 of Cohan’s plays, musicals, and sketches, which will be made publicly available for the first time on the Collections Portal.
