Scope and arrangement
The Samuel Russell Eves papers date from 1925 to 1998. They contain over 70 compositions by Eves for piano, organ, voice, and various chamber group instrumentations, as well as sketches and untitled or incomplete works. The collection also holds a photograph of Eves, a short biography, the program from his memorial service, and a transcription of a promotional brochure for Eves. The transcription is on a Microsoft Word 5 for Macintosh file produced in 1998 by Eves' niece, Dr. Margaret Barton Small. A listing of Eves' compositions compiled by Dr. Small can be found on the archival portal.
Scores and other collection materials are arranged separately. The scores are divided into four categories: Piano, Organ, Vocal, and Instrumental Compositions, and Sketches/Untitled Compositions.
