Notes:
The title "Acker" appears on the verso of parts in this folder. -- Parts are in bad shape, having ragged edges. It would probably be helpful to have them microfilmed or encapsulated to reduce the wear and tear on the materials. A simple process would be to send them out after they have been requested for use. -- Handwriting and other details have been reported based on the notes of David Berger, Andrew Homzy, Dr. Theodore Hudson, Walter van de Leur, and Mark Tucker. Prof. Homzy and Dr. Tucker have been consultants on this project. Dr. Hudson is a knowledgeable member of the Duke Ellington Society, and Walter van de Leur is a budding Strayhorn scholar. David Berger is affiliated with the Lincoln Center jazz program in New York City, and has worked with Ellington music as a conductor and transcriber for several years.
