The collection is organized in three series.
Series 1 contains sound recordings and films. The recordings are arranged by type of performance ensemble and identified with one of the following notations after the title (LP-H: Historic recording, UI: University of Illinois Band, U: Non-University of Illinois Collegiate Bands, M: Military Bands, S: Summer Camp and Festival Bands, and C: Community Bands). The recordings are arranged alphabetically by title within each grouping. The films are arranged numerically by film number.
Series 2 contains historical music instruments and ephemera used by musicians during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, including two clarinets used by A. Smith while a member of the John Philip Sousa Band in 1900.
Series 3 contains manuscript music, published sheet music, concert programs, newspaper/magazine clippings, and photographs. The manuscript music and published music are arranged separately, alphabetically by composer. Whenever possible an identification of the format of the music for each title (i.e., full score, condensed score, piano score, and parts) has been identified with the corresponding abbreviations, FS, CS, PS, P. The concert programs, newspaper/magazine clippings, and photographs are unarranged.
Contains published sound recordings and transcription discs of a variety of American and European music performed by American wind bands. Of particular interest are early recordings of the John Philip Sousa band.
