Wendell Hall Sheet Music Collection
About the Database
The Wendell Hall Sheet Music Collection is comprised of over 3,000 pieces of sheet music and song books, mostly popular tunes from the early 1900s into the 1950s.
The core collection, about 2,500 pieces, is from the personal collection of Wendell Hall (1896-1969), a popular singer and ukulele player, who was a star of radio, vaudeville, films, recordings and television from the 1920s into the 1950s, later becoming an advertising executive.
He was also a well-known composer, his most famous songs being "It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More," "Under the Mellow Moon" and "Land of My Sunset Dreams."
In addition, Hall compiled several ukulele instruction books and song folios. In 1966 he donated the collection to the Music Hall of Fame and three years later it was purchased by the Anderson Public Library.
Wendell Hall's collection is housed in the Anderson Public Library's Indiana Room and is searchable by song title below. Please see staff for assistance in locating sheet music from the collection or email us if you have questions.
