Gustav Schirmer, who founded the music publishing company of that name in 1861, was born on 19 September 1829 and lived until 1893. This company supported generations of gifted American composers, including Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein, Paul Creston, Roy Harris, and Gian Carlo Menotti. That tradition remains active today.
