Ownership and Custodial History
Unknown provenance prior to donation to the library. At time of rehousing, materials were in a box labeled by library staff as "Amelia Young Sheet Music." This is believed to be in error. Rebecca Whitsitt Young was the donor of the materials; it may be that her name was confused with that of her niece, Amelia Whitsitt Edwards, who was also a frequent donor to the Nashville Room.
