: I'd like info (lyrics, sheet music, songtitles, or just anecdotes about)
: songs that might have been been written and/or become somewhat popular
: right after the 1906 earthquake, about the event.

Although I am sure there were quite more, there are a couple of entries at Bancroft Library's current page on the 1906 earthquake:

http://bancroft.berkeley.edu/collections/earthquakeandfire/browse.html

Look under the topics, "Popular music 1901-1910" and "San Francisco (Calif.)--Songs and music"

Two of the titles they have:

The stricken city words by Ella Wheeler Wilcox; music by F. Fanciulli
Wilcox, Ella Wheeler, 1906

Firemen March, by Paul R. Godeska
April 18, 1906


The San Francisco Performing Arts Library & Museum may have a list already put together:
