Content and structure elements

Scope and content

There are three boxes of reel-to-reel tapes. The contents include: Tony awards, original cast albums, operas, auditions, interviews, radio shows and press conference. There is also one unidentified 16mm film. The title list that came with the collection was not accurate; therefore, a question mark appearing after titles indicates that the title may not be entirely accurate. Titles and descriptions were determined by listening and researching each track and were identified to the best of our abilities.

System of arrangement

The cassette tapes are labeled and ordered by label number.
