Keffer Collection of Sheet Music,
William S. and John B. Pendleton were born in New York. The Pendletons operated various engraving and lithography firms in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia from 1825 to 1836. They are often considered to be among the founders of commercial lithography in the United States.
There are approximately twenty-three items in the collection for which the Pendletons provided the illustrations.
