Misc. Comments

This work is Smith's representative in the (Walter Willson) Cobbett Association Library (Catalogue of The Cobbett Association Library Holdings (DOC file)). (under Smith, David S.) (Schissel)

A forthcoming performance of this work is announced (rather, mentioned as having been announced by Mrs. F. S. Coolidge - Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge she was later called, I think...- for the Annual Berkshire Festival) in The Violinist, August-September 1921 issue, page 282.

Some of the quartets of Smith according to the Finding Aid at Yale University (pages 21-24 of the David Stanley Smith collection finding aid.) (op.46 might be quartet 3 or 4 depending on the status of opus 2. Oddly, reminds me of the case of Hindemith's opus 2.)
