William Lichtenwanger retired in 1974 from his longtime post as head of the reference section of the Music Division of the Library of Congress, which he had served since 1940. Along the way he was editor of the Music Library Association's journal Notes, and he wrote or edited many significant studies, including the "Bibliography of Asiatic Musics" (in Notes, 1947-51) and "The Music of the 'Star- Spangled Banner'" (Library of Congress Quarterly Journal, xxxiv [1977], 136-70). With his wife Carolyn he edited Wayne Shirley's index to the journal Modern Music (1976), and he not only edited but provided sharp and witty annotations for the Sonneck Society's anthology Oscar Sonneck and American Music (1983). He resides in the mountain fastness near Berkeley Springs, in northeastern West Virginia.

The Institute for Studies in American Music at Brooklyn College, City University of New York, is a division of the College's Conservatory of Music. It was established in 1971. The Institute contributes to American-music studies in several ways. It publishes a series of monographs, a periodical newsletter, and special publications of various kinds. It serves as an information center and sponsors conferences and symposia dealing with all areas of American music including art music, popular music, and the music of oral tradition. The Institute also encourages and supports research by offering fellowships to distinguished scholars and, for assistance in funded projects, to junior scholars as well. The Institute supervises the series of music editions Recent Researches in American Music (published by A-R Editions, Inc.) and is the administrative seat of the Charles Ives Society. I.S.A.M. activities also include presentation of concerts and lectures at Brooklyn College for students, faculty, and the public.
