Grateful Dead, Road Trips vol 1 no 3: Summer ’71

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.
