Scope and Content Note

This series contains the subject files kept by William Levi Dawson over the course of his career. They contain correspondence, receipts, conference programs, and other printed material. Most files concern Dawson's guest conducting engagements and programs he gave at national conferences, though there are some files from Dawson's career at the Tuskegee Institute, particularly the Tuskegee Institute Choir and the founding of the music department. Printed material concerning Tuskegee may be found in the printed material series. A small number of files contain material Dawson collected during his trips to Africa in 1953 and Spain in 1956 and include itineraries, correspondence, and reports.
