Biographical Sketch

A biography is unavailable. We know that Hilda Trautwein was originally from the German and Czech community in south Texas named Shiner, perhaps best known as the location of the Kosmos Spoetzl Brewery that produces Shiner Bock Beer. In 1912, William Dickson Green of Shiner led a group of German and Polish farmers to establish Wilson, Texas, on the High Plains of the Llano Estacado, southwest of Lubbock. Hilda Trautwein Crosby is assumed to have been among that group.

Scope and Contents

The Etudes are inventoried chronologically with the lead article appearing after the Volume number, and the interior sheet music is listed in the order it appears in the publication. The individual sheet music is inventoried alphabetically by name of the lyrisist when different from composer. The collection is in good, if fragile, condition and is part of the Crossroads of Music archive.
