Description of the Addition

From the Series:

This addition to the Glenn Cliffe Bainum Papers spans 8 boxes and the years 1905 and 1982. These papers were separated from the John P. Paynter Collection, and It features general files, correspondence, notes, posters and photographs, a scrapbook, and files on Bainum’s death.

The collection is organized by size and type of items. The first three boxes of the collection are regular-sized papers and files on Bainum, organized alphabetically. Box 4 is alphabetically organized legal-sized documents. Boxes 5 and 6 feature a scrapbook, posters for the NU band, photographs of Bainum, music written by Bainum, and a gift given to him by the band upon his retirement. Box 7 holds a large oil portrait of Bainum, which probably hung in the band office of Bainum’s successor and protege, John P. Paynter. The collection concludes with a box of certificates and diplomas organized by date, including his high school graduation diploma dated 1905.
