Four proof sheets with 85 black and white images, plus negatives. The convention was founded in 1928, and performs four times a year.

Description
Three reel to reel recordings. Murray was born in 1911 in Moultrie, Goergia. He moved to Florida in the 1930s to work the cane fields, but soon moved to other agricultural jobs. He often played songs learned from records in local white clubs and at parties during the 1930s and 1940s. In 1980, he still performed at local social functions. These are field recordings from the Florida Record Project. That project, along with work for the North Florida Project, resulted in the two-album recording, Drop On Down in Florida.
