Cool stuff found by Library of Congress interns.

The Library of Congress blog reports that Library of Congress interns, whose job each summer is to comb through uncatalogued copyright records and collections acquired through gifts, have found a batch of neat stuff such as:
an October 1935 issue of G-Men (vol. 1, no. 1)

original instrumental sheet music for Scott Joplin's "Maple Leaf Rag" (1899)

an original Broadway cast recording of 42nd Street (1980)
Greenwich Village (ca. 1922), which assembles pieces from Chaplin's The Rounders (1914) and another Chaplin film to create a new film

Further details about the finds here.
