    The collection includes audio documentation of religious expression in Haiti, circa 1940s-1950s, as well as an audio interview with Shirley Keller about her work on the book The Magic Orange Tree and a video of a presentation she gave with Angus Gillespie on vodou traditions. The wires appear to be the source recordings for the 1953 Rigaud book La tradition voudoo et le voudoo haïtien : (son temple, ses mystères, sa magie). Most of the sound tape recordings are compiled dubs of wire recordings.
