Included are playbills, sheet music, admission tickets, newspapers, magazines, books, photographs, clippings, flyers, brochures, pamphlets, sound recordings, research files, and other material.
Scope and Contents note:
The papers of historian Henry P. Whitehead measure 156.91 linear feet and date from 1843 to 2010 (bulk 1945-1986). The collection includes the personal papers of Henry P. Whitehead, Tomlinson D. Todd, Elizabeth B. Delaney and the Howard Theatre Foundation. The collection is divided into four series.

Series I focuses on Whitehead and includes papers dating from 1843 to his death in 2011. This series includes biographical material including a large amount of appointment books, identification and membership cards, resumes, certificates, and personal and family material. There is a limited amount of correspondence, which focuses on his personal relationships with family, friends, and general correspondence relating primarily to his work as a local historian.

Also found within Whitehead's papers are countless records from his time employed by the Washington DC government. Materials include memoranda, notes, research material, handbooks, guides, manuals, affirmative action info and records, affirmative action plans, promotion recommendations, recruitment plans and summaries, personnel files (complaints), civil actions and reports related too Whitehead's 37 years of government employment. It reflects the activities of numerous departments, primarily in regards to employment and affirmative action.

There are also a number of files that document Whitehead's involvement in numerous community organizations. Among the organizations in which Whitehead was involved include U Street Festival, Lincoln Corporation, and the U Street Theater Foundation. The papers of the U Street Foundation document the production and establishment of the annual U Street Festival. The Lincoln Theater Foundation and the U Street Theater Foundation papers document the efforts to reopen the Lincoln Theater. Also included are Whitehead's research on the Lincoln as well as old Lincoln Theatre programs. Additionally found within this series are documents and clippings on the economic development within Washington DC particularly in the Shaw/U Street location.

The majority of this series consists of printed material. Printed material in this series includes books, clippings, magazines, newsletters, newspapers, press releases, sheet music, programs as well as promotional material for several Washington DC theaters and organizations. There is a large quantity of theater programs dating from 1900-1986. The majority of the clippings and magazines are theater related topics, coupled with a miscellaneous selection of clippings on topics that presumably captured Whitehead's attention.

Research, notes and writings include a large amount of scrapbooks compiled by Whitehead of mostly photocopied clippings documenting Washington DC history, African American theater history, and general African American history. Five scrapbooks were compiled by an unknown source and were previously housed in the New York Public Library collection. Two scrapbooks are about general theater history one about Frances Starr and one about Margaret Anglin. There is also one scrapbook pertaiing to Mae Hall. Also included are a large amount of research notes and notebooks along with general miscellaneous notes.

There are several photographs of African Americans in the performing arts as well as images of Washington DC and several unidentified men, women, and children.

Audio recordings include 23 cassette from the Alexandria Church of God.

Scope and Contents:
The folder includes a worksheet, landscape plan, artist's statement, color copy of article on Seurat's "A Sunday Afternoon on The Ille De La Grand Jatte," magazine article, histories of Deaf School Park, topiary plant list, and a survey.
General:
The 10-acre garden began in 1989 by the Columbus Recreation and Parks Department. It is a recreation in sculpted shrubbery (topiary) of French artist Georges Seurat's famous oil painting "A Sunday Afternoon on The Ile De La Grand Jatte" (1884-1886) owned by the Art of Chicago, Illinois. The topiary project was conceived, designed and executed by Columbus sculptor, James T. Mason, and assisted by his wife, Elaine. Mason matches sculpture from "Taxus" shrubs with Seurat's painting of eight boats, three dogs, a monkey, and fifty-four figures (the tallest is twelve feet). Trees, ponds, paths, benches, and a gate house have been added. The last armature was set in place in 1990. The wrought iron fence around the park once surrounded The State House of the State of Ohio.
Persons and firms associated with the property and garden include: John Allen (former owner, 1802-1809); Lyne Starling (former owner, 1809-1812); State of Ohio (former owner, 1829-1981); Columbus Recreation and Parks Department (owner); and James T. Mason (garden designer, 1888-1993).
