Special Collections endowment to support the acquisition, preservation,
and promotion of material related to Southern gospel, bluegrass, and
country music. His donations of sound and video recordings, printed
matter, photographs, and research material are part of the Special
Collections Department's Popular Music Collection. Daniel is the author
of Pickin' on Peachtree: A History of Country Music in Atlanta, Georgia
(University of Illinois Press, 1990) as well as numerous articles on the
styles of music supported by the endowment.
