Found in 3 Collections and/or Records:
Manuscript materials, sheet music, and Arkansiana, mostly pertaining to Hot Springs and Garland County.
Manuscripts, pictures, and printed items were collected and maintained by Hudgins in her home, mainly as research material for her free-lance writing. The collection also includes material assembled by other people similarly engaged, as well as manuscripts and printed articles written by Hudgins and others.
The collection consists of transcriptions of lyrics and music (melody only) and annotations of Ozark folksongs recorded and collected from 1926 to 1950 in the Ozarks by Vance Randolph. In addition, folklore-related correspondence, research notes, and clippings are included.
