Series 1. Correspondence/Research Files, 1913-1987, and undated
2.94 linear feet
RPA 00164-00170 (boxes 1-7)
Consists of correspondence, notes, copies of birth and death records, obituaries, and other materials collected by Walsh as he researched performers and recordings. The Correspondence subseries consists of Jim Walsh’s written communications with collectors, dealers, experts, record companies, readers, and listeners. Many of the letters consist of requests for information, responses to requests for information, discussions concerning equipment, inquiries about particular recordings or companies, and potential purchases or trades. Frequent correspondents include Duane Deakins, Allen Debus, Milford Fargo, Jim Martindale, and Quentin Riggs.

Research files consist of information about individuals, recordings, and subjects. Many of the files concerning recording artists or personalities include correspondence with or about the performers, and this is complemented by a wealth of other biographical information. Resources include copies of birth and death records, newspaper and magazine clippings, record lists, obituaries, research notes, brief biographies written by Walsh, and other miscellaneous items. Researchers can find photographs of many of the individuals represented here in Series 5.
The series is divided into two subseries: Correspondence and Research Files. Correspondence is filed alphabetically by correspondent’s name; a few miscellaneous and unidentified folders are placed at the end of the subseries. Research files are arranged alphabetically by artist or subject.
