James Biays Young spent a rich-and-full life collecting jazz recordings and books about “America's classical music,” and now the fruits of those twin obsessions are entrusted to the University of Maryland Eastern Shore.  

Before Young, a Baltimorean by birth who retired to Ocean Pines, died in mid-February he donated some 5,000-plus compact discs to UMES, a decision influenced by the campus being home to a jazz-format FM radio station.
