Original holograph musical score for the unpublished SONATA FOR ORGAN, by 20th-century American composer John Stewart McLennan, Jr. (1903-1996). McLennan was the son of the Canadian senator of the same name (1853-1939) and the American writer Grace Seeley Henop Tytus McLennan (1875-1928). He was born in Tyringham, Massachusetts, at Ashintully, his maternal family's estate. He acquired that property in 1937 and lived there for the remainder of his life. After the estate's Georgian-style mansion was destroyed by fire in 1952, McLennan moved into the farmhouse, converted the nearby barn into a music studio, and began designing the vast and elegant gardens for which the property is best known today. Ashintully Gardens has been given in multiple stages to the Trustees of Reservations land trust by McLennan and his wife Katharine since 1977.

McLennan studied piano and composition at the Peabody Conservatory and, over the course of his long career, composed chamber and orchestral music, pieces for the piano and organ, songs, and choral works. He received the American Academy of Arts and Letters music award in 1985. The present piece was dedicated to American painter and sculptor Wilfred Zogbaum (1915-1965), to whom he had also dedicated his 1980 TRIPTYCH FOR ORGAN.
