Thread Name: Copyright query Curly Fletcher's ballads
Subject: Copyright query Curly Fletcher's ballads
My family has an original $1, 1931 copyright copy of Songs of the Sage by Curly Fletcher, with sketches by Guy M. Welch. Pub. was Frontier Publishing in L.A.

I would like to offer a photocopy of these ballads in the auction, but am wondering about the copyright. I checked Curly's name at the copyright office registered works thing and one came up of a song he and Bob Nolan copyrighted, apparently in 1952, if I read it right.

Anyway, do any of you know whether his stuff has passed into Public Domain or not?
