Memorabilia created by Franklin McGinley for and by Duke Ellington, including a scrapbook, additional clippings, and various commemorative materials. The scrapbook, presumably put together by McGinley, documents the rise of swing music and Duke Ellington and includes autographs by Ellington and other musicians of the period. The remaining loose materials document Ellington's posthumous legacy, with the majority of the clippings consisting of obituaries or coverage of Duke Ellington’s passing in 1974. Two publications in the Commemorative publications & events folder (Series 3; Folder 5) were not digitized due to copyright restrictions. A more detailed finding aid for this collection, including additional background information, is available here: Franklin McGinley collection on Duke Ellington (BCA-004).
