Sounds and Stories began in 2002 as an oral-history project. A Peabody Conservatory musicology seminar of 18 students interviewed dozens of participants in the music of Baltimore's black community to record their memories and to document their world and their legacy. The collection was assembled primarily from 1998 to 2004 and contains oral histories, photographs, and supporting research about African-American musical culture, especially in Baltimore from approximately 1930 to 1960.
Vincent DeMarco was an American advocate for handgun control and assault weapons bans, tobacco taxes, and universal health care born on May 23, 1957 in Trevico, Italy. The collection includes business correspondence, research, polls, newspaper articles, pictures, advertising tools, and video and cassette tapes from 1980-1998.
