Audiovisual material

Scope and Content Note

The audiovisual series contains audiovisual material collected or created by Dawson, including audio recordings, video recordings, motion picture films, and phonograph albums. Not all of Dawson's original audio library was retained as a part of the collection. Selected rare recordings unavailable at other libraries, rare recordings of African American musical organizations, and any recording that featured Dawson as a conductor or performer were kept as a part of this series. A listing of the remainder of Dawson's audio library is available in the collection file.

Arrangement Note

Organized into two subseries: (11.1) Audio recordings and (11.2) Video recordings.
