Because of the uncertain economy of war time, he no longer could get a publishing contract, and like all other songwriters was forced to sell his compositions outright to publishers with no prospect of future earnings.

Steve has taken great pride in the trainees who have passed through his fellowship program, and has methodically tried to select them from around the world in order to extend the influence of his clinical and research traditions. After years of financial instability and the sharing of memories of the White Cottage with Stephen by his parents and siblings, the impact of longing for a permanent home that was no longer available to him greatly influenced his writing.

Stephen Foster married in Because he did not perform music professionally, as most songwriters did to support themselves, Foster himself was not well known to the public. Multiple publishers often printed their own competing editions of Foster's tunes, paying Foster nothing.

In their own era, Foster's songs were highly topical productions. Foster himself was about to leave on a speaking engagement and intended to send the girl to be cared for by her grandparents.
