In processing the Burnside Collection of American Theater Music Manuscripts, Richard Jackson made a tally sheet for each folder of music, indicating kinds of scores or parts to be found (information which was not included in the alphabetical finding list prepared for the collection) as well as names and titles associated with the music.

Burnside.
