Scope and Content Note

The collection includes band cheers and newsletters, flyers, programs, concert tickets, and a script from the band's half–time show at a 1961 Boston Patriots game. There are also letters of invitation extended to community members and thank you notes from area hospitals. A scrapbook of photographs from concert and marching band performances is also included. Audio–visual materials consist of footage from marching band performances at Homecoming and other events, and of individual band members. Reel–to–reel audio recordings of band concerts from the 1970s and 1980s include concert band, jazz band (Rocky Road) and future Band Association director Kenneth Ayoob's clarinet masters recital. Of special interest is the VHS recording of "To Tell the Truth." This game show featured marching band member Everett Nau who was voted the 1970 Winter Ball Queen. Highlights of the collection include the textiles. There are 4 styles of uniforms represented: two full uniforms (pants, jacket, and hat) and two additional band jackets. There are also two banners from the Northeastern University Band.
