Part 2: The Vince Meades Sheet Music Collection S. D. S. U.

Vince Meades and Delores Fisher at San Diego State University Special Collections and University Archives (2014)










Vince Meades and I spent many hours reminiscing about songs from the pre 1900s and early 1900s. Although we don’t see each other as much, when we do, it’s a time of music, rememberance, and information sharing.

He reminded me that a musicologist/researcher must do more than engage in music theory and soci-cultural and historical analysis. That type of dry interaction indulges superficial knowledge with the sonic fabric, the sonictapestry of songs.

Somehow, I had forgotten my community and academic mentors deliberate pronouncement that one must inhabit the music in order to know it more fully. This second page of inquiry and discovery is dedicated to Vince Meades and our hours of joy while musically sharing our lived experiences.
