- Scope and Contents note
- Includes magazine, newspaper, and other articles by or about Duke Ellington. These articles document the breadth and depth of critical acclaim and esteem in which Duke Ellington and his orchestra were held in the United States and abroad. They include tributes, biographies, results of polls of magazine critics and readers, announcements of concert and dance appearances, reviews of personal appearances, record reviews, interviews, reminiscences, and other items of general interest about Ellington, his orchestra, and orchestra members. Of particular interest is the original profile of Duke Ellington by Richard O. Boyer that first appeared in The New Yorker in 1944. Also included are many articles and reviews from such jazz journals as Metronome, Down Beat, the British Jazz Journal, and the French Bulletin du Hot Clubs de France. Items written by Ellington appear in such publications as Ebony (1952, 1954), Jazz (1959), Down Beat (1962), The Christian Science Monitor (1968), Look (1971), Boy's Life (1972), and Esquire (1973). Further documentation of events referred to in these materials can be found in programs, scrapbooks and unmounted newspaper clippings. The articles are divided by domestic and foreign and are further arranged in chronological order within each group. Undated items have been placed at the end of each group. Oversized materials have been placed at the end of the series, but are listed chronologically within the box and folder listing. The word "in" preceding the title of a magazine or newspaper indicates that a complete copy of that journal is included; the word "from" preceding the title indicates that only the designated article is included. Foreign languages are indicated in brackets.
