351 _aThe collection is arranged in two series; Series 1 contains the Schirmer materials, and Series 2 contains the Galaxy items. They are numbered within their respective series, so that the numbering restarts at "1" in Series 2.
From SMU's Guide to the Ferde Grofé Collection:
Galaxy — These items were extant in the gift and the card file.
Schirmer — The same holds true for the Schirmer as it does for the Galaxy items. Inventory was taken, but no conservational tasks were performed. Also, like Galaxy, the Schirmer items are all published materials from Grofé’s working library and were not written or arranged by him.
506 _aAccess to this collection is provided only by special arrangement. Please contact the Music Library for more information.
520 2 _aThe collection consists of 18 boxes from the composer’s personal library, comprising some manuscript arrangements, but primarily orchestrations including the complete Schirmer’s Galaxy Library.
