The most elaborate and extensive programs were made for Sousa's stay, and contained complete programs for the entire engagement, usually exceeding more than a week's stay. The programs were 24 pages and measured 9" high and 12" wide. A typical page contained pictures of the composers featured, and a paragraph explaining each composition or section. Ten selections (with an intermission) were typically programmed. Only two business ads, and one ad promotions future events appeared in the program.
