Note(s): In 2007, Martin Winner donated these handwritten scores and parts to FAU Libraries.  Mr. Winner’s sister, Dorothy Demby-Lasky worked for the Glenn Miller Agency in New York City and was assigned as Johnny Desmond’s secretary.  She came into possession of the music after the Glenn Miller Agency vacated their Manhattan offices circa 1947.  After some time, Ms. Demby-Lasky gave the music to her brother Mr. Winner.  These compositions were performed on the radio circa 1944 but were not published.
