The Howard Goding collection is comprised of six series:
- Notebook, Ledger
- Concert programs
- Publicity materials
Goding's Harmony notebook contains harmonic exercises that he probably composed as a student. The ledger contains a listing of Goding's students from the academic year 1943-1944. The one folder of correspondence contains two greeting cards and a few empty envelopes. The next folder includes several concert programs that range in date from 1936-1960, including two from the BSO and one from Jordan Hall. Goding's publicity materials include press brochures/flyers and a poster. The fifth series contains newspaper clippings about Goding’s performances, primarily from the 1930s (which have been photocopied for preservation purposes). The final series includes several photographs including two large portraits of Goding, two copies of the same photo of a group of people (faculty?) including Goding, a picture of Goding with two other men, as well as autographed photos of Goding's teacher, George Proctor and Paul Shirley. The entire collection spans the years 1928-1960, with the majority being from 1932-1937.
