Mayhew Lester Lake (also known by the pseudonym Lester Brockton) was an American composer, conductor, editor and arranger. Beginning in 1913, Lake was the editor-in-chief of the band and orchestra department at the music publisher Carl Fischer, a position he would hold for 35 years. Many of the manuscripts in the collection were used for Lake's sixteen-piece brass concert band, the Symphony in Gold, which he conducted for NBC Radio. The Mayhew Lake "Symphony in Gold" Collection contains manuscript parts used by Lake for the Symphony in Gold.
