Collection of early rock and roll 78 RPM records, 1948-1953
The 78 RPM records in this collection are of unknown provenance and were selected for addition to the Archives for their rarity. They highlight early hits in rock and roll music, such as "Sixty Minute Man" and "Rocket 88," both of which are contenders for the first rock and roll record ever recorded. Each record has a four-digit number attached. These are catalog numbers, which were used both to track sales through distributors and for in-house accounting.

Jeff Friedman papers, 1916-1999
This collection is comprised of 3 boxes containing notes, papers, and teaching materials compiled by long-time Berklee faculty member Jeff Friedman. It is believed these materials were primarily used to support his class on Duke Ellington, and it is likely that some of the items were passed down to him by his predecessor, Herb Pomeroy. The bulk of the materials are scores, but also include articles, a few recordings, articles, and other ephemera by or about Duke Ellington.
