CMS 015 documents, mostly through song sheets, the career of Neapolitan-born Italian-American comic artist Edoardo (“Farfariello”) Migliaccio (1892-1946), creator of songs and sketches about a rural-born Italian laborer’s misadventures as an immigrant in urban, industrial America. The song sheets are supplemented with stationery and photographs used during Migliaccio’s career, clippings documenting his appearances, and photocopies and microfilm of his scrapbooks and notebooks. The collection also contains correspondence, samples of stationery, paper reproductions of signed portraits intended for distribution to fans, song sheets, photocopies of Italian song lyrics interspersed with diary-like entries, and clippings from La Follia di New York and other periodicals published in New York, Boston, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Italy.
