Yes, if there were a Whitman cylinder, Haley was not able to show ANYONE  
that it EVER existed (per se). He only offered a later 're-recording,' for  
aural purposes.
 
 The knowledge of the early people who dealt with him (on the radio  end) 
referred to it as a "gramophone cylinder." This is the level of expertise  
running rampant in those days.
 
  The detailed 3-page article by Allen (from the 1992 APM) can be  found as 
a pdf file at:
 
      _www.phonobooks.com_ (http://www.phonobooks.com) 
 
    just scroll down to the bottom there and click on  'Walt Whitman.' No 
wonder Yale turned it down...
