Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
The Margaret (Marnie) Walker Dilling Collection is comprised of Dilling's ethnomusicological research, mostly on Korean music, Korean-American musical communities, and music of the Olympics. Included in the collection are her field notes, journals, and audio and video recordings. The types of material found served as the guideline for the organization of the following series: documents, videotapes, audio tapes, scores, books, periodicals, programs of festivals, photographs and realia, and computer discs. Much of the materials were arranged by Dilling herself and the categories were kept despite the fact that they are not totally exclusive. Material not yet sorted by Dilling were put in folders and categorized accordingly. In order to clarify the difference between Dilling's labels and ours, Dilling's labels are notated in quotes. If possible, cross references were made between the series to aid the researcher. Thus, in the document series, whenever there is a tape that accompanies the transcript, it is so noted. Conversely, in the video and audio tape series, whenever a transcription is available, it is noted in the finding aid. Most of the material is in English. Many of the materials in Korean, including articles, parts of books, and transcripts of audio tapes in Korean, were translated into English for Dilling herself. The McCune-Reischauer system was used for all romanization both by Dilling and us.
