Jay Livingston and Ray Evans, Silver Bells (sheet music cover, 1950), Ray Evans Papers, Rare Book & Manuscript Library

Academy award nomination, Ray Evans Papers, Rare Book & Manuscript Library

Ray Evans (W'36) was the lyricist for one of Hollywood's most successful songwriting teams in the decades following World War II. His engaging lyrics coupled with the memorable tunes composed by his partner Jay Livingston (C'37) turned songs like "Silver Bells" and "Mona Lisa" into classics. This exhibition tells the story of Evans's remarkable career in Hollywood by focusing on the seven songs nominated for an Oscar from 1945 to 1964. Objects on display include letters, photographs, sheet music, record albums, and the three Academy Awards that Evans received.
