Film Music Group Ousts Founder

The founder of the Society for the Preservation of Film Music has been ousted from its board of trustees and now claims the organization’s stated goals have taken a back seat to fundraising.

William H. Rosar was dismissed from the board at an April 20 meeting. “The only thing I can tell you is that it’s the outcome of a long battle of in-fighting going on for the last year and a half,” Rosar said.

Herschel Burke Gilbert, board president, said Rosar “was refused as a trustee, which the organization has a right to do without cause. We did it with cause and we don’t wish to make those causes public.”

Founded in 1983, the private, tax-exempt society strives to save scores, manuscripts, recordings and soundtracks from deterioration or destruction.
