Summary:
Field notes, manuscripts, photographs, booking contracts, correspondence, personal papers, newspaper clippings, magazine articles, interviews, and other research materials primarily relating to the history of American blues music. Collection documents the lives of significant blues musicians Robert Johnson, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Lightnin' Hopkins, and Mance Lipscomb; insight into the life, writings, and research practices of Robert "Mack" McCormick; and the business side of recording and selling the blues.
Scope and Contents:
The collection documents the life, writings, research practices, and business activities of blues scholar Robert "Mack" Burton McCormick who came to serve as a leading authority on the genre. Personal papers include diaries, curriculum vitae, biographical sketches, school papers, employment documents, correspondence, financial records, and an interview transcript. McCormick's writings consist of published magazine and journal articles, plays, essays, television scripts, short stories, and album liner notes. There are complete unpublished manuscripts, drafts with notes and research materials, and ideas for future work. McCormick's research practices and subjects of interest are documented in correspondence, field notes, annotated maps, newspaper clippings, magazine articles, city directories, interviews, photographic prints, negatives, slides, and contact sheets. American blues, Texas blues, and the music of significant blues artists, who McCormick served as an agent and manager for, dominated his extensive research efforts. In addition, the collection documents the recording, distribution and sale, and identification of consumer markets for American music in correspondence, contracts, agreements, music journals, publicity and promotional materials, music manuscripts, and interviews.

Throughout the collection preservation measures were performed to ensure long term use of the materials. Newspaper clippings were photocopied, and the originals were discarded. Audio cassette tapes have been reformatted and the digital copies will soon be available for research use.

Biographical / Historical:
Robert Burton "Mack" McCormick (August 3, 1930-November 18, 2015) was a self-taught folklorist who spent a lifetime researching, collecting, and writing about vernacular music in the United States. Most of his work focused on the blues and other musical traditions of Black, brown, and white communities living throughout Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. After experiencing a difficult, transient childhood and eventually dropping out of high school, McCormick settled in Houston, Texas and began to work a series of odd jobs while relentlessly pursuing his goal of becoming a successful writer. Although researching and writing about music came to occupy most of his time, he also pursued passions as a screenwriter and novelist. The volume of historical research and personal interviews he conducted from the 1950s through the early 1970s is remarkable, and his published writings during this period about music and the musicians he doggedly studied were lauded by his peers as among the best in the field. Along the way he worked for a time as a manager for the careers of the Texas songsters Sam "Lightnin'" Hopkins and Mance Lipscomb, and briefly ran his own record label. He made hundreds of hours of field recordings with musicians living throughout the South. He collaborated with colleagues such as Chris Strachwitz, founder of Arhoolie Records, and Paul Oliver, with whom McCormick spent over a decade researching and writing a manuscript on the history of Texas Blues. Beginning in the late 1960s, he was contracted by the Smithsonian Institution as a field worker for its annual Festival of American Folklife, and around the same time began researching the life of blues legend Robert Johnson for a manuscript that McCormick wrote and re-wrote but failed to publish in his lifetime.

McCormick's research, along with his personal archive, became the stuff of legend among fellow blues researchers and enthusiasts, particularly after his publishing output dwindled in the 1970s. He lived with a bipolar disorder that drew him into bouts of depression and paranoia. He came to distrust many of those colleagues working most closely with him, and sometimes shared untrue information to throw them off the trail of his research discoveries. He also "borrowed" heirloom photographs from the family members and descendants of blues artists and, in several cases documented in this collection, he refused to return them. Overcome with challenges that lay both within and without his control, he came to describe the massive archive in his Houston, Texas home as "the monster," and spent his final decades attempting with little success to publish his writings.

CDR copy Tape Info: FW-ASCH-7RR-2720 through -2725 contain recordings made by Kentucky singer Jim Garland of local singers and church services. FW-ASCH-7RR-2724 features the Brown Family, who call themselves the Kentucky Gospel Singers. They include Walter Brown, the father, who is the singer and guitarist, his son Floyd, who plays double-necked Hawaiian guitar, Ed Fuson, who plays bass, Della Brown (Floyd's wife) and Theda Brown (Walter's daughter). All but the last two songs feature Walter as soloist. The last two songs (not on this CD) are sung by the two ladies. Walter Brown composed about half the songs on the tape. He is a member of the Holiness Church and "goes from place to place visiting churches and singing." Jim Garland prepared a sheet of additional information about the Browns and has also typed out the lyrics, all of which will be retained along with the tape in a new tape box.

Schools

Type:
Archival materials
Date:
1906-1908, undated
Scope and Contents:
Materials in Series 3 document two types of schools: Federal Indian Boarding Schools (along with similarly conceived boarding schools for indigenous youth, sponsored by religious organizations) and Hawaiian guitar schools. The boarding schools were originally conceived of as educational facilities designed to detribalize, assimilate, and indoctrinate Native peoples. Musical instruction was considered essential to this effort, as school officials sought to suppress and replace Native musical practices with those associated with Western European classical and American marching band music. Despite the assimilative agenda of the school officials, Native students instead used their musical instruction merely to expand their repetoire and musical interests.

The Hawaiian guitar schools, in contrast, encapsulated the early-mid 1900s global phenomenon of Native Hawaiian musicians, music and instruments, such as the Hawaiin steel guitar and 'ukulele, transforming the musical imaginations and practices of peoples all over theworld. Hawaiian guitar schools opened all over the United States and typically consisted of non-Native students in learning how to play Hawaiian guitar.
