May contain relatively little material relating strictly to music. Total of 177 cartons delivered to the University and stored temporarily in the Music Library during the latter half of 1985. “The materials would include films, works of art, recordings, books, draft copies of many materials never published, published items, and a host of excellent material on some of the more significant research in aesthetic education during the past decade and a half.” (Letter, R. Colwell, 12 Oct 1982).


Processed material is either cataloged with locations in the Main Stacks or Oak Street Library Facility. Other materials are held in the University Archives (finding aids here). Test materials are currently being processed by Social Science, Health, and Education Library as of 2022.
