Abstract:

The collection consists of personal and professional papers reflecting Jenkins' career as a musician and composer, and encompasses four series: Personal and Professional Papers, Family Papers, Jenkins Orphanage Documents, and Research Material. The personal and professional papers contain letters from Jenkins to his father and stepmother, Eloise C. Harleston Jenkins, letters to Jenkins from friends and professional associates, including a letter from composer Will Marion Cook; family papers consisting of letters written to the family following Jenkins' death in 1926 and documents related to his death and the disposition of his estate; Jenkins Orphanage Documents including letters, programs and playbills, and financial papers; research material gathered by Jeffrey P. Green, the donor and author of EDMUND THORNTON JENKINS: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF AN AMERICAN BLACK COMPOSER, 1894-1926 (1982). The research material includes Green's correspondence and interviews with people who knew Jenkins, a listing from SACEM of the songs composed by Jenkins, photocopies of articles regarding Jenkins, the Orphanage, Jenkins family members and prominent musicians who had some sort of affiliation with the Jenkins Orphanage and the Band.
