View previews of over 100 sheets of German sheet music.

Louise Kuehn Appleman was born and raised in Corpus Christi, Texas. Appleman graduated with a B.S. in Nursing from Texas Woman's University in 1962. The music in this collection is believed to have been the property of Appleman's grandmother, Clara Krasa Kuhn (01/15/1881-12/26/1934), wife of Benno Kuhn (09/07/1878-05/09/1969) in Germany. The music was brought to the United States by their son Otto Kuhn (06/10/1909-03/09-1975), Appleman's father, in 1938 when he fled the Nazi regime and settled in Corpus Christi, Texas. The spelling of Kuhn was "Americanized" to Kuehn during the marriage of Otto Kuhn and Elizabeth Reck in 1938.
