Description: Consists of scrapbooks, reel-to-reel audio tapes, CDs, DVDs, cassette tapes, VHS tapes, sheet music, photographs, correspondence, posters and concert programs documenting Dr. Shirley Meyer Blankenship's career as a music student at the University of Illinois, a harpist, violinist, pianist, composer, theatre performer, private music instructor, and an University of Illinois School of Music faculty member between 1972 and 1981. Of special note are original compositions based on the music of her former husband and jazz musician Guido Sinclair (1935-1992) as well as graphic illustrations, concert posters, jazz recordings, and Sinclair's original compositions. The Music and Papers were partially digitized by Dr. Blankenship prior to being acquired by the University of Illinois. These digitized copies are on CDs and DVDs.
