Max Morath (1926- ) is a ragtime pianist, composer, actor, and author. From 1959 to 1961, Morath wrote, performed, and co-produced 26 half-hour television programs for National Educational Television (NET). The Ragtime Era series showcased the development of the music of that period and brought him national recognition. It was followed by the Turn of the Century series, which dealt with popular music's interaction with the nation's social history. The programs were produced by KRMA in Denver and were seen on the NET network throughout the 1960s. In addition to his television series, Morath made other contributions to NPR and PBS. His papers consist of scripts, general background material, audio recordings, and video recordings.
