Archival Collections

The Hogan Jazz Archive holds a variety of unique Archival Collections, many with online finding aids that contain some digitized content. Notable collections include, the Dominic "Nick"  LaRocca Collection containing the personal papers and scrapbooks of the founder of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, the American Federation of Musicians Local 174-496 Collection with board minutes and materials dating as far back as 1904, and the Robert Palmer Collection with a diverse assemblage of materials from the Rolling Stone correspondent and author of Deep Blues.
At the right, are links to our most popular online finding aids. A complete listing of all online finding aids for the Hogan Jazz Archive can be found on our Arhives site. Please note, this site does not reflect the complete holdings of the Hogan Jazz Archive. Collections that are not fully processed will not be displayed on the site above, although they may be open for research.
