If the Gershwins have come to symbolize an era, their music and lyrics transcend it. The proliferating performances and recordings of their music testify to its enduring popularity, and George and Ira continue to be the subjects of popular as well as scholarly study. Yet, however well known their music and their life stories may be, the materials found in the George and Ira Gershwin Collection housed in the Music Division of the Library of Congress remain an invaluable resource for research. The Gershwin Collection is the world's preeminent body of primary-source materials for the study of the life and work of the Gershwins, providing not only biographical information and a record of the brothers' compositional processes but also a compelling and immediate sense of the brothers' distinctive personalities.
