The Grants series includes information on grants which FUIRBAM either applied for, secured, or were otherwise connected. Such grants also were central to the sustaining of operational practices and potential programming funding. The National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Tennessee Arts Commission, and Tennessee Committee for the Humanities and the United Negro College Fund are all represented. The Institute Programs series is arranged among five subseries. Scholars always in residence at Fisk, who conducted research and assisted Floyd in carrying out organizational objectives, are found within the Institute Fellows and Research Associates subseries respectively. Though scant documents, including meeting proceedings and budget projections, are found, researchers will find documentation of activity among pioneers of the field of ethnomusicology particular to black Americans. The Archives Development subseries contains information on solicitation and procurement of archival materials suited to the activities of FUIRBAM and the University Special Collections and Archives. An active repositories expansion initiative, designed to build upon the existing Arthur Cunningham, George Gershwin, and Jean Toomer music collections, centered on collection consultation, evaluation reporting, and ongoing analyses within other major music repositories in the nation is documented. The Cultural and Educational Affairs subseries contains information about in-residence Affiliate Artists, who provided cultural entertainment. Researchers will find information on educational and free activities for the city of Nashville and surrounding areas, and education and entertainment collaborations are recorded. There are also records from the Festival of Black American Music in Chicago highlighting major achievements of black musicians in the U.S., and the world, as well as seminars, lectures, short courses, and conferences implemented to link scholars and musicians who had some plans of preserving the musical heritage of black Americans. The remaining Publications Program subseries is centered on the "Black Music Research Newsletter" and the "Black Music Research Journal" and contains advertising data, correspondence with contributors, editorial activity, and copy. In addition, the subseries contains data pertaining to "Black Music Preceptor," conference papers, occasional papers, and the "John Wesley Work Research Journal." "Black Music Preceptor" was intended to reach a high school audience whereas the conference papers and occasional papers represent special black music themes presented separate and apart from the regular newsletter and journal publications. In the case of the "John Wesley Work Research Journal," by-laws, board deliberations, and additional documents recording evidence of the John Wesley Work, III Memorial Foundation, Inc. are also contained. The documents are arranged in their original proximity to correspondence between Samuel A. Floyd and Edith M. Work. Their correspondence regards Floyd's appointment to the board and collaboration between the Memorial Fund and FUIRBAM for publication of the Research Journal.
The Financial Business series contains many records of fundraising initiatives, programming financial proposals, budget projections, and operational receipts. This series has fifteen subseries. Extensive information on the annual endowment campaigns is provided. Information on both prospective donors and those who gave money can also be found in the Financial Business series. Additionally, records documenting respective programming activity are contained. Contained within the Fisk Inter Departmental series are twenty subseries. Non-FUIRBAM-related documents appear in this series and may be useful to researchers interested in the backgrounds, interaction, and correspondence of faculty and staff during Leonard's presidential tenure, as well as those interested in respective departmental programming activity. Contained in the Booklets, Brochures, etc. series is information on the Amistad Research Center, Gospel Music Association, Leadership Nashville, and the Nashville Academy Theatre: organizations that advertised and sustained relationships with FUIRBAM. Additionally, information on the Fisk Annual Arts Festival, music of the Harlem Renaissance, and the National Urban Festival Orchestra are also contained here, as well as programs for recitals by the American String Quartet and Fisk graduates Anne Gamble Kennedy and Tyrone Jolivet. The Writing series contains primarily newspaper clippings, copyright correspondence and data, and manuscripts and writings by Floyd. Those of various board members and others directly affiliated with him also appear, in addition to some sheet music by various composers and terminal degree work for Floyd advisees. Photographs of Floyd and board members Dominique-René de Lerma, Arnold Shaw, Geneva Southall, and Clark Terry appear. The series also contains a rare 1925 picture of Fisk alumnus Jimmie Lunceford. Finally, a Miscellaneous & Unidentified series contains unknown lists and unrecognizable materials.
