Collection consists of the exhibit detail book, probably produced in the 1950s or 1960s, containing text and illustrations for the exhibit "Ostetrical Forceps Delivery," curated by Dr. Frederick H. Falls and illustrated by Charlotte S. Holt, as well as six exhibition panels.
The exhibit consisted of five sections: Anesthesia; Technique; Management of Newborn; Pathology; and History and Indications. Within each section, Falls and Holt presented examples of situations leading to a forceps birth, correct technique for the use of forceps, the issues arising from this method, and the treatment of the newborn after this procedure. The five larger exhibition panels feature hand-drawn color illustrations, text, and photographs of models, and measure 39.5 x 26.5 inches; the smaller title panel measures 11 3/8 x 17 1/2 inches.
Acquired as part of the History of Medicine Collections at Duke University.

The Leah Fritz papers are organized into three series. The Personal Papers series contains Leah Fritz's correspondence and subject files. The Writings Series contains Fritz's notebooks and diaries as well as drafts, published articles, and papers related to the publication of Fritz's prose writings, poetry, and book and article reviews. The Audiotapes series contains audiocassettes of presentations and poetry readings by Fritz and other recordings.

Contains materials from Saville's various courses taught at Duke. Also includes facsimiles of musical manuscripts, and vocal parts for music used as class examples and as part of the Madrigal Singers' performance repertoire. Collection also contains a wooden box of lantern slides and negatives, primarily of scenes from historical opera performances and opera houses. Removed rubber-bands, 1 folder of receipts and photocopy requests, 1 folder of student employment records, 1 folder of salary information and peripheral "to do" lists.
Album contains 106 black-and-white and color photographs carefully arranged and mounted in a black-leaf photograph album, bound in Japanese-style lacquered covers inlaid with mother-of-pearl. Photographer may be an African American soldier named Tommy, who served in the U.S. Army's 511th Operation and Maintenance Service (OM SVC) Company during the Korean War. It is unclear whether the photographs are from Japan or Korea, as the latter was strongly influenced by Japanese culture until the end of World War II.
The images depict soldiers in and out of uniform and often engaged in recreational pursuits. Many photographs depict both white and African American soldiers together. Other subjects include local women and children; women with servicemen; the countryside and Japanese-style buildings; and family members and others back home. Included with the album is an early 20th century 10 1/2 x 14 inch portrait of four African American children.
Acquired as part of the John Hope Franklin Research Center for African and African American History and Culture at Duke University.

The Sonny Burke Collection (chiefly undated, but some dated between Nov., 1949 and June, 1951) has as its focal point 76 arrangements of popular music for "Big Band." These charts were used by Burke's band during the 1940's-1950's for performances in the United States and Mexico. Most of the arrangements appear to be by Sonny Burke, but other composers/arrangers include: Frank Erickson, Hal Schaefer, Stan Kenton, John Valentine Eppel, Laurindo Almeida, and Ray Conniff. Some of the arrangements were made for recordings on the Decca Records label. The most common instrumentation is for two alto saxophones/clarinets, tenor saxophone, baritone saxophone, four trumpets and four trombones, although other combinations exist. The instrumentation is noted for each title in the Container List.

The collection includes 3-page survey forms completed by approximately 500 seniors in Durham, Guilford and Wake County high schools, circa 1955. The survey was titled "Plans of High School Seniors," and included questions about their families' economic status and educational background, living conditions, current activities and post-graduation plans. The forms are arranged by county, then school and sex, then numerically by an apparent score or value penciled on the form. Additionally, the collection contains a typed draft manuscript of a work, mimeographed copies of a proposal to offer the Ed.D. at Duke and mimeographed copies of papers relating to Wilmer Wilborne, et al vs. H. P. Taylor, et al, a civil rights suit against Washington County (N.C.) schools which include a copy of "A Report on a Comparison and the Program and Facilities of Instruction in the Negro and White Schools of Durham," by John W. Carr, Jr. (Professor of Education at Duke) and other material on Durham schools, along with a report on Arlington County (V.A.) high schools. The material ranges in date from circa 1947-1955.
Not all of the surveys have a penciled value or score on them. Since the purpose of the value or score is unknown, surveys with values or scores may fall under FERPA rules as protected information. As such, access to those surveys may be prohibited.
This collection contains memoranda, newsletters, catalogs and other records. Topics include Duke University administration.
