.1 l.f. manuscript materials

4 instantaneous recording discs




Given to the Center in March 1997 by Mr. Lane Boutwell along with some transcription discs for copying.

Mrs. Jacobsen was born in Cherokee, Iowa, and learned these folksongs as a child.

Scope and Content:

Six sheets of typed and hand-written lyrics, hand-written music, and games for children. One notebook, 27 pages, 32 songs. All songs and poems are apparently copied from other sources and compiled for this class. The instantaneous sound discs are recordings of unaccompanied vocal renditions of eighteen selections.
