Collection Creator Biography:

Broude Brothers, Limited

For three quarters of a century, Broude Brothers Limited was one of the leading music publishers and retailers in the Unites States. While the Broude family still maintains ownership of the independent firm, its retail operations, which had served institutions, performing organizations, and individuals, and which supplied both Broude publications and those of music publishers throughout the world, were recently acquired by Theodore Front Musical Literature. Its wholesale operations were transferred to the C. F. Peters Corporation.
