Radio scripts and indices

Subseries consists of radio scripts written by Leslie Bell and indices for particular programs that Bell hosted.

Band arrangements

Subseries consists of Leslie Bell's scores and parts for band, including original compositions and arrangements.

Choral manuscript music

Subseries consists of blueprint-style manuscripts, manuscripts written in ink or pencil, and copies of blueprint scores. Most of the manuscripts are Leslie Bell's arrangements of other composers' original popular, folk, or classical music for choir, with some original compositions. Information about the original composers, intended ensembles, dates, and where and when the songs were performed is not consistently recorded in the manuscripts' heading. There are also symbols and words that are unidentifiable, such as "B.G." and "Jordan," which appear frequently. The manuscripts are generally autographed with one of the following: Leslie Bell, Leslie Richard Bell, L.B., or L.R.B. All information that is provided has been transcribed in the finding aid.

Scrapbook contents

Subseries consists of loose-leaf pages of radio scripts and program notes from files labeled "From scrapbook." These files were presumably intended to be added to a scrapbook, or were removed from a scrapbook at some point.

Handwritten and typed notes

Subseries includes notes from Leslie Bell's teaching career and his time as a student, as well as research notes for Bell's radio programs and various lectures.
