Songwriters Hall of Fame

The Songwriters' Hall of Fame is an arm of the National Academy of Popular Music. It was founded in 1969 by Johnny Mercer (a songwriter) and Abe Olman and Howie Richmond (music publishers). Ultimately it intends to offer a museum but at present it exists only as a virtual museum on the Web. (See "External reference" below.) It has an office in New York, New York. It also holds workshops and showcases, and grants scholarships, to help develop new song writing talent.

New inductees are voted on annually. At each annual event, gifted and promising songwriters are awarded a scholarship called the Abe Olman Publisher's Award for Excellence in Songwriting, named for one of the founding members.
