Grateful Dead Donate Archives to UC Santa Cruz
Band members Bob Weir and Mickey Hart made the announcement this morning at a press conference held in the poster room of San Francisco's historic Fillmore auditorium.Here is a stream of the announcement...fairly entertaining for Deadheads...Bob, Mickey, Eileen Law and others answer questions.
Documenting the history of the band from 1965 to the present, The Grateful Dead Archive will reside in the University Library's Special Collections at UC Santa Cruz. The focal point of the collection will be a dedicated room named "Dead Central," where both academic researchers and the general public will have access to the archive.
And, yes, at least one pair of Bob's cutoffs will be in the archive.Posted by Steve on April 24, 2008
