Melinda's Wedding Day, by Goodwin/McCarthy/Piantadosi (c. 1913)
Lucie King Harris Collection of Sheet Music
Lucie King Harris, born in Sonoma in 1883, was an arts patron, a philanthropist, and an ardent horsewoman. She helped found the San Francisco Opera Association in 1922 and was a governor of the San Francisco Symphony Association, as well as a founder of the San Francisco Choral Society. After her death in 1974, her son, Lawrence W. Harris, Jr., and his wife, Jane, chose to honor her through a book fund for music materials. The Lucie King Harris Books for Music Fund was the first endowed fund in Music at Stanford University.
