“Call Me Henry” Sheet Music

Description (Brief)
This sheet music for the song, "Call Me Henry (A march)" was composed by Charles Benter, a bandmaster in the United States Navy and Director of the Navy Yard Band. The music was published by the Almas Temple in Washington, DC in 1920. The cover has a picture of Henry Lansburgh in the center, who was the Illustrious Potentate (highest rank) of the ALMAS Shriners in the 1920’s. It is rumored that he merely wanted “Call Me Henry” and his life dates inscribed on his grave marker, and this song might have gone along with that wish.
