0.4 Linear feet
Box 13

Photographs depict Donaldson with his wife Arnicia, a visit to Uganda in 1974, an Arizona State University symposium, and late-career professional portraits. Photographs taken in Uganda include photos of Donaldson's group with Idi Amin and some related memorabilia such as a menu inscribed with a message from Amin to Donaldson. Photographs of others include a copy of a photograph taken of a Sunday School class in Arkansas, possibly including Donaldson. Other individuals pictured include Linda Council, and musicologist Eileen Southern.
Also found are a few photographs of family members, and friends, as well as photographs and slides of Donaldson's artwork and the artwork of others.
Three personal sound recordings are found at the end of the series: a recording of a household with a baby girl, probably Jameela Donaldson, in the background with her caregiver; a recording of Miles Davis's 1986 release Tutu; and a 1987 recording that appears to have been made from radio of an interview with Romare Bearden, possibly one conducted by Charlayne Hunter-Gault in 1986, followed by news items.
This bulk of this series has been digitized.
