Summary
In the 1920s and 30s contemporary music in the United States entered an era of many changes. Through the League of Composers, which I helped to found, serving as executive chairman for twenty-five years, it became my good fortune to see at first hand the composer coming into a new and significant place in the pattern of our culture. The League evolved into a form of Composers' Guild. Its history is a kaleidoscopic record of the times in contemporary music. A new public awakened to novel concerts, opera, and ballet, and these became important in musical history. - Introduction
