Randle Bond Truett recording collection

 Collection — Multiple Containers
Identifier: 1977_067-UA
Consists of four "transcription disc" recordings on the Gettysburg Address, the Lincoln Museum, Peterson House, and Lincoln Memorial. These recordings were transferred to a reel-to-reel tape, which is also part of the collection. It is not clear whether these recordings were made by Randle Bond Truett or by others; Truett, a historian, did offer lectures on Lincoln's life and death. The disc and tape labelled "Peterson House" may refer to the Petersen House, the boarding house where Lincoln died.
