Professor Daniel Endows Music Archive

Georgia State Professor Emeritus Dr. Wayne W. Daniel recently funded a library endowment to support the acquisition of material related to Southern gospel, bluegrass and country music. The collection—which includes material amassed personally by Daniel—will be part of the Special Collections Popular Music archive.

Daniel retired in 1991 from the J. Mack Robinson College of Business Institute of Decision Sciences. He is author of "Pickin’ on Peachtree: a History of Country Music in Atlanta, Georgia" (University of Illinois Press, 1990). To contribute to the endowment in Daniel’s honor, contact Development Director Melisa Baldwin: mbaldwin7@gsu.edu or 404/651-1429.
