    John Philip Sousa "The March King" Archive. This is the contents of the photograph album of Benjamin Hudish (1893-1991), the last surviving member of the Sousa Band. The Polish-born Jew played French horn for Sousa from 1909-1918, followed by stints for Enrico Caruso, the Detroit, Cleveland, and New York Symphony Orchestras, the Roxy Theater, and Radio City Music Hall. The archive includes some ephemera, fourteen autograph photos of band members circa 1912, photos of the band at outdoor concerts, en route to venues, family photos, and images of theaters, including the Waldorf and Casino. There are over eighty photographs, many in real photo postcard format. We notice three photos that include bandleader Sousa. This grouping covers various fields of collecting... theater history, Judaica, America culture, music, and urban development.
