[Dovie and Derrick Williams speaking; a lecture recording]

Description: Sound recording of Byrd Williams IV's son Derrick interacting with a woman, possibly his mother Dovie. There are background sounds and what could be a blender or other household item. Towards the end of the first track the sound begins to become distorted. The second track is from a professor's lecture about the realism artists of the early 1900s including John Sloan and George Bellows; the speaker focuses on societal progression and the history of social welfare projects through their art. At the 7:55 mark on track two Byrd gives a response to one of the professor's questions. Towards the end of the second track the sound becomes slightly distorted before cutting off.

[Cassette recording of television and lectures on Robert Henri, John Sloan, and architecture]

Description: Sound recording by Byrd Williams IV. The first track opens with the ending of a commercial for trolls toys and then picks up with a recorded lecture with a woman speaking. She is discussing artists and the circle of influence that is the focus of this class session. She also speaks about an exhibit students had the chance to see. There is white noise throughout the recording and also background noises like coughing. The recording becomes distorted around the 11:30 mark and continues to be wobbly until the end of the first track. During the distortion the content switches to what sounds like a show on television and the lesson is cut off. The second track begins with a man speaking though it is too muffled to distinguish clearly. He mentions "modern architecture" and the "history of architecture" at a point early on. It breaks at the 4:15 mark on track two and returns to the woman's lecture, this time focused on John Sloan.
