This item comes from the collection of Artie Kern. Many of the items in Artie's collection were on display in the Songwriters Hall of Fame Museum in NYC where he also was a consultant in the early 1980s before it closed. He obtained many of the items with the help of Sammy Cahn who was president at the Hall for 17+ years and Artie acted as his chief A/V man for many years previously.
About Sammy: Sammy Cahn was very much an accomplished lyricist in the entertainment industry and obtained many of the autographs through his personal friends and associations. He scored high notes with Academy Award winning lyrics in four songs (most notable is “Three Coins in the Fountain”). Cahn also kept his feather duster busy with five Golden Globes and an Emmy on his bookshelf. If that’s not enough clout, Sammywas Frank’s personal lyricist for 50 years at Columbia Records, Capital Records and in the ‘60s Frank started Reprise Records. Many of their hits like “Second Time Around “and “Call Me Irresponsible” (Oscar winner) were successful. They were recorded on Reprise in the 1960s.
