On April 24, a press conference was held in San Francisco to announce the gift of the Grateful Dead’s archives to the University of California at Santa Cruz. This is not the music and video archive, aka the Vault – that material is in the hands of Rhino Records for commercial release. This is the collection of press clippings, photos, posters, fan mail, publicity materials, etc., lovingly cared for over the years by Eileen Law.
Here is Regan McMahon’s article about it from the San Francisco Chronicle.
Here is the New York Times‘ story.
Here are Bob Minkin’s photos.
