This manuscript is a brief unpublished resume of Frances Densmoreʼs work with Alabama (Alibamu) music. Includes pages 251-256.
Local Numbers:
NAA MS 3245 (part)
Local Note:
No date appears on the manuscript but it could not have been written before 1933 and probably was written ca. 1940's because the page numbers correspond to similar resumes for the Acoma and Winnebago. This carbon copy was received from the Densmore estate, ca. 1962.
