IPTC INFO
CaptionTo avoid disappointment there are two things a visitor should know before walking through the door. The first is that the Dead Central logo - which combines the University of California symbol of an open book with the rose from "American Beauty" - is not available on a T-shirt. There will be a tie-dyed Dead Central T-shirt for sale but it bears the banana slug mascot that John Travolta wore in "Pulp Fiction. --- --- --- What the Dead donated was 600 linear feet of office papers and the conference table the musicians sat at while shuffling those papers. The Dead papers have attracted the supporting collections of Dennis McNally the band's publicist and historian and the late Dick Latvala the keeper of the vault of concert tapes known as "Dick's Picks." --- --- --- The bulk of the collection is housed on a different floor of the library. Meriwether doesn't know how many items there are and won't know for years. Stuff keeps coming in. Thousands of items have been cataloged from which 250 have been selected for this opening show. These include concert posters photos ticket stubs backstage passes song lyrics and chords on binder paper and enough ephemera to merit its own category which Meriwether calls "Deadheadiana."--- --- --- "What we're trying to do with the exhibit is introduce the major sections of the archive " he says. --- --- --- This introduction starts with a note from Garcia handwritten and shaky detailing his upbringing at 87 Harrington St. in the Excelsior district of San Francisco.
