This chapter focuses on the achievements of Edna Phillips and Sam Rosembaum after the war. Sam did indeed pick up the strands of his career after he returned from the war, and his achievements in later life were impressive. At the end of 1948, the U.S. Secretary of Labor Maurice J. Tobin named him to the position of independent trustee of the Music Performance Trust Funds for the Recording Industries. Edna Phillips never stepped out of the world of music despite leaving the orchestra. She continued to commission works for the harp and work with composers to polish them, an ongoing responsibility and commitment, and she performed the premieres of the compositions with orchestras and other ensembles. She was also devoted to two community projects involving children and music: Young Audiences and the Settlement Music School.
