Historical Note

Dr. William H. Tallmadge (1916-2004), Professor of Music and charter member of the Sonneck Society (now the Society for American Music). Dr. Tallmadge taught music at Buffalo State College from 1949-1976, specializing in jazz and American folk music. Indeed, he developed the first course for credit in the United States on the history of jazz. Dr. Tallmadge's work is especially notable for the attention he paid to recording and studying African American church music of the early 20th century, though it is believed that none of these recordings are maintained within this collection. Dr. Tallmadge continued to teach at Berea College after his retirement from Buffalo State College.

The William Tallmadge Music Collection is comprised mainly of commercial recordings and reel-to-reel tapes of music utilized in Dr. Tallmadge's music classes. Notably, many of the latter material has not be fully processed; consequently the exact titles of these records are unclear. Other materials include 1.5 linear feet of commercial music catalogues from the 1930s and 1940s as well as one linear foot of notes on index cards related to the collection's contents.

Some material may be restricted for replication under copyright laws.

Miscellaneous phonorecords listed on previous nine pages have been put by the collector into generic albums without commercial title labels, presumably for storage. The two exceptions to this are Album 6 which has a cover title "Xavier Cugat's Mexico" and contains 3 of the 4 original records, and Album 5, which has a commercial cover title "Waltzes You Saved for Me" and actually contains recordings of Bing Crosby and Peggy Lee.
