This chapter takes a look at a letter Forsythe wrote to Still, where the former requested some information for a proposed biography. The information Still sent to Forsythe can be found in the “Personal Notes” chapter. This chapter shows that Forsythe's letter included a proposed outline of the book. Forsythe planned to discuss Still in the first two sections, while the third and fourth sections were for an analysis of Negro Folk materials and pure African folk materials, and a discussion of the music itself.

Keywords:   proposed biography, proposed outline, Negro Folk materials, pure African folk materials
