Subject: Vintage Greek Sheet Music?

Hello, Gonda,

I'm writing to see if you might know of anyone who would be interested in the donation of a small collection of vintage Greek sheet music from the early to mid-20th century.

I'm a Greek-American whose grandparents all immigrated here from various parts of Greece and Asia Minor during the early part of the 20th century.  Last year, my mom passed away at the age of 88.  In going through her belongings recently, I found a collection of about 55 pieces of sheet music in Greek, dating from about 1928 through the 1970s.  (I'd say that most pieces are from the 1930s and 1940s.)

Someone studying the Greek diaspora might find these a wonderful resource, so I'm hoping that I can find a scholar or library that would be able to give them a good home.  While doing research on historical societies for a totally different project, I stumbled across the Modern Greek Studies Association, and I thought, "Aha!  These might be the people who would have the answer to my sheet music question!"

I've pasted a complete list of the songs and any available publication dates below (and also attached the list as a text file, in case the Greek letters don't make it through cyberspace). (I apologize for any typos -- I was using an online Greek typewriter, and I'm sure I made lots of mistakes...)

Finally, if you or someone else might be interested in seeing images of the sheet music, I've made a little gallery of all the music here:

Thank you very much!
