The fonds is a source of jazz history in the mid-20th century.
The fonds consists of 491 reel-to-reel audio tapes. Most of them contain interviews conducted by Henry Whiston with jazz personalities, in preparation for the show "Jazz at Its Best" and other radio shows. The interviews served as source material from which excerpts were edited into the program. A large part of the documents are related to Glenn Miller or the Duke Ellington orchestra.
