BOX 33-34, 40, 69-71 Clippings, 1950-1996, undated
Album advertisements, Mingus’s and Debut Records artists’ concert and album reviews, and periodicals comprise the Clippings series. Most of the clippings concern concerts, including those Mingus gave in Europe and Asia, or biographical exposés. Mingus kept periodicals and articles about major historical events or articles on topics of personal interest, which are included in this series. Some clippings have been photocopied due to physical deterioration. The series is divided into two file groups: Articles, which are single articles cut or photocopied from newspapers or magazines, and Periodicals, which contain entire magazines. Several articles are posthumous tributes to Mingus published after his death in 1979.
Arranged alphabetically and chronologically therein.

There is one piece of artwork in this subseries, the painting “Space Soul” by Elliott Cola. Cola’s music is located in the “Music by Others” subseries of the Music Series.
