Related manuscript material by the collector can be found in the Phillips Fund Collection (Mss.497.3.Am4).

Sound quality note

At the time the audio was migrated to DAT around 1991, the following was noted by the audio archivist: "Overall an extremely problem-plagued collection.... The overiding problem is frequent speed variation of the tapes, due to a fluctuation in voltage supplied to the collector's tape recorder from an electric generator. An attempt has been made during re-recording to RDAT to correct speed variation on the original tapes by use of the pitch control on the playback machine (OTARI MX-5050B11), which has a plus-minue factor of 7% in variable speed control." More specific sound quality issues are noted in the item record for each program.
