This journal contains Marshall's Band meeting minutes, membership lists, officers, concerts and rehearsals, newspaper articles, financial reports, constitution, and by-laws. Marshall's Band was organized in the summer of 1884, at Topeka, Kansas, under the name of "The Republican Flambeaux Band," and played throughout the state during the presidential campaign of that year. After the election, it was reorganized and given its present name, in honor of its director, Mr. John B. Marshall. Also included in this journal is an agreement between Marshall's Band and E. W. Wilson, Pekin, Illinois, dated July 1903. The agreement committed the band to one concert on each Sunday at Vinewood Park. In turn, the band was paid $50.00 for each concert.
