Weckerlin, a French folklorist, bibliographer and composer, was head librarian at the Paris Conservatoire, succeeding Félicien David.."During his 33-year tenure there, he doubled the library's holdings with carefully selected new books, started collections of autograph scores and letters, and edited a selective catalogue." He is best-known for his La chanson populaire, published in Paris in 1860.
