Abstract: During the past several decades many fine studies on early American composers have been undertaken. One of the most significant of these is William Treat Upton's biography of Anthony Philip Heinrich, a native of Bohemia but as much a son of his adopted country as George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. Upton's thorough, sympathetic, and highly entertaining account of Heinrich's rich and varied life suggests many further rewarding investigations of the countless manuscripts Heinrich left as his legacy to America. Most of these manuscripts are in the music collection of the Library of Congress and are easily obtainable on microfilm.
