Abstract The collection of speech communication professor Jimmie N. Rogers contains eighty open reel tapes comprising a 36-hour Memphis, Tenn., radio show titled The History of Country Music that was produced by Don Bruce and John Thayer of Together, Inc., in circa 1970. Other materials are scholarly papers presented at professional conferences by Rogers and his colleagues, a few publicity photographs of country music artists including George Jones, and clippings, posters, and printed items pertaining to Lucinda Williams and other musicians. The scholarly papers with titles such as "Audience Attitudes as Indicated by Cheatin' Messages in Country Songs" and "Images of Females as Indicated in the Messages of Loretta Lynn" are chiefly about rhetoric in country music. Rogers' collection also contains commercial videos of country music artists such as Merle Haggard and commercial audio recordings of popular music from the twentieth century on disc (LP, 78-rpm, and 45-rpm records), cd, cassette, and 8-track tape. Acquired as part of the Southern Folklife Collection.
