expand/collapse Expand/collapse Biographical Information

James Kern "Kay" Kyser was born 18 June 1905 in Rocky Mount, N.C., to Paul Kyser and Emily Royster Kyser, both pharmacists. His mother was the first registered female pharmacist in North Carolina. His uncle, Edward Vernon Howell, opened the pharmacy school at the University of North Carolina in 1897 and served as the dean until his death in 1931. His cousin, Vermont Connecticut Royster, was the editor of the Wall Street Journal from 1958 to 1971. Another member of the Royster family, Julianna Royster Busby, established Jugtown Pottery in Moore County, N.C., in 1920.

Following his family's lead, Kyser entered the University of North Carolina in 1923. At school, he was a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity and was active in the Playmakers Theatre. He was also the school's head cheerleader, establishing the cheering section known as the Carolina Cheerios. Kyser's bandleader career began in 1926, when he took over as the leader of the school orchestra. He graduated with high honors in 1927. In 1937, Kyser wrote "Tar Heels on Hand," which became the school's fight song.

After graduation, Kyser and his band hit the road in pursuit of a musical career. The band had little success for several years, barely able to make ends meet. In 1934, the band received its big break when they became regular performers at the Blackhawk Restaurant in Chicago. In 1937, the band began to get the audience involved by asking questions about music. Originally known as Kay's Klass, the performance went nationwide on NBC in 1938 as the College of Musical Knowledge (often written as the Kollege of Musical Knowledge) when the American Tobacco Company bought the show for Lucky Strike. The College of Musical Knowledge ran on NBC from 1938 to 1950, first on radio and then briefly on television. The show performed weekly to nearly 20 million listeners, with Kay, the "Ol' Professor," questioning contestants who won money and a diploma. The College of Musical Knowledge had many members during its run, including Harry Babbitt, Mike Douglas, George Duning, Ish Kabibble (whose real name was Merwyn Bogue), Georgia Carroll Kyser, Sully Mason, and Ginny Simms. The act was the first to perform for troops during World War II. Kyser and the orchestra also appeared in several movies, including That's Right, You're Wrong and Carolina Blues .

In 1944, Kyser married singer Georgia Carroll, who had joined the College of Musical Knowledge the year before. The couple had three children: Kimberly, Amanda, and Carroll. In 1951, Kyser quietly retired from show business, moving his family to Chapel Hill, N.C. No longer in the Hollywood spotlight, he became active in the Chapel Hill community. Through the Kyser Foundation, he gave scholarships to students of music and dramatic art at the University of North Carolina. He was also instrumental in improving health care in North Carolina, starting the state's public television station, and establishing a highway safety program. He was also active in the Christian Science Church, directing the church's radio and television broadcasting division at the Boston headquarters in the 1970s, being a guest lecturer, and becoming the national honorary president in 1983.

Kyser died in Chapel Hill on 24 July 1985 and is buried in Old Chapel Hill Cemetery.

Georgia Carroll Kyser was born 18 November 1919 in Blooming Grove, Tex. A fashion model, actress, and singer, she is perhaps best known as "Gorgeous" Georgia Carroll as part of Kay Kyser's College of Musical Knowledge . She appeared in three films: Around the World, Carolina Blues, and Thousands Cheer .

About 400 items.

Primarily letters written to Kay Kyser and Georgia Carroll Kyser. Major themes include planning for the 1948 salute program commemorating the College of Musical Knowledge 's tenth season on NBC and Kay Kyser's death in 1985. Materials from the 1990s and 2000s include letters to Georgia Carroll Kyser from Kay Kyser biographers Raymond Hair and Steven Beasley, and from Vietnamese exchange student An Pham.

Similarly, in 1997 Harry Babbitt sent Georgia Carroll Kyser letters Kay Kyser wrote in the 1930s and 1940s. These letters are filed with the 1997 correspondence. There is little fan mail.

About 400 items.

Arrangement: chronological.

Newspaper and magazine clippings about Kay Kyser, Georgia Carroll Kyser, and the College of Musical Knowledge. Early clippings follow Kay Kyser's musical career before the College of Musical Knowledge. Clippings from the late 1930s and 1940s document the College of Musical Knowledge and the height of Kay Kyser's career. These clippings include documentation of the orchestra's work entertaining troops during World War II, both on American soil and in the Pacific theater. Many of the clippings from the 1940s are from clipping services. Although the glued-on tags on some of these clippings are still attached, many have fallen off. The unattached tags are included loose-leaf with the clippings. Some of the later clippings cover the orchestra and its members in retrospect, sometimes making only a brief mention of Kay Kyser or the College of Musical Knowledge . Other later clippings document Kay Kyser's involvement with Christian Science, including his 1983 honorary presidency of the Christian Science Church. There are also a large number of clippings documenting his death in 1985.

expand/collapse Expand/collapse Subseries 4.3. Photograph Albums, 1920s-1940s and undated.

2 items.

Two photograph albums mostly containing photographs from the 1940s. The first album consists of excerpts taken from Ish Kabibble's original World War II diary when he joined Kay Kyser to entertain the troops in the South Pacific in 1945. The album was assembled by Ish Kabibble's daughter, Janet Bogue Arnot, and given to Georgia Carroll Kyser to take to a November 1994 "Big Band Tribute." A clipping of Ish Kabibble's obituary is included in the back of the album. The second album consists of photographs of Kay Kyser taken by Charlie Killebrew in Rocky Mount, N.C. The photographs are undated, but appear to be taken between the 1920s and 1940s, but some may be from the early 1950s. Other people in Killebrew's photographs include Georgia Carroll Kyser, Mack Riggsbee, and a member of the Rocky Mount Rocks baseball team.
