Introduction to the Exhibit
Even if you’re not aware of it, you’re probably already familiar with the music of Johnny Mercer. His songs, with their wide range of musical styles, have been heard by millions of people all over the world on recordings, radio programs, films, television programs, and Broadway shows throughout the past century.
This exhibit was created by Amber Moore and Michelle Leasure, Archival Assistants at Georgia State University, Special Collections and Archives. Thanks to Kevin Fleming, Archivist for the Popular Music and Culture Collections, and thanks to Michelle Asci for the banner image design. The exhibit was created to commemorate the legacy of Johnny Mercer and to support the mission of The Johnny Mercer Foundation.
