|Title:||Rhodes S. Baker, Jr. Collection, 1924-1990|
|Primary Creator:||Baker, Rhodes S., Jr. (1912-1967)|
|Arrangement:||The papers are partially organized, but also contain considerable duplicate material; the arrangement is complicated by early attempts -- some 40 years ago -- to make sense of collection and catalog the recordings which came with it, which saw UNT materials and notes shuffled in with Baker's materials. The collection also includes considerable documentation of stages of assessment and organization in the early 1970s, the early 1990s, and 2008-2009.|
Scope and Contents of the MaterialsThe collection consists about 14 boxes of papers related to Houston attorney Rhodes Baker's research and collection of Duke Ellington recordings, along with tape recordings, 78 r.p.m., and LP records.
