About 200 items.

Arrangement: In order as received.

Acetate discs include field recordings made by Hudson and his folklore students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, including recordings made in Chapel Hill, N.C., Swannanoa, N.C., Asheboro, N.C., and Cheryville, N.C.; recordings of folklore classes and lectures by Arthur Palmer Hudson and others, including Dr. David Horace Bishop of the University of Mississippi (FD-20050/35-36); and recordings of Yiddish folk songs made in Bloomington, Ind. (FD-20050/26-29).

Of particular note are recordings related to Alton Chester Morris' 1941 dissertation, "Folksongs of Florida and Their Cultural Background," which Morris submitted to the Department of English at UNC under the guidance of Arthur Palmer Hudson. Morris, a fourth-generation Floridian, began his research into Florida folklife as a field worker for the Folklife section of the Works Progress Administration’s Federal Writers Project in the 1930s. This work culminated in his dissertation, which was later published as Folksongs of Florida (1950; reprinted 1990). Morris's recordings (FD-20050/45-99) consist of Anglo-American ballads, children's songs, work songs, and hymns, as well as Spanish, Minorcan, Greek, Czech, and Slovak folk songs, children's songs, and national songs, all of which were recorded from across the state of Florida by Morris and others. Morris compiled the recordings with the help of Florida Federal Writers' Project workers, high school graduates affiliated with the National Youth Administration of Florida, and John A. Lomax and Alan Lomax of the Library of Congress. The series contains dubs of select recordings from Morris' original and collected recordings, which reside at the Library of Congress.

The series also includes related documentation found with select recordings, including inventories, tape logs, and a copy of Alton C. Morris' 1941 dissertation. Tape logs include technical information about the discs, transcriptions of original labels found on the acetate discs, and notes on the content found on the recordings. Transcriptions and notes often include information on artists and song titles.
