Dominic "Nick" LaRocca Scrapbooks

The Dominic James "Nick" LaRocca collection contains many gems, perhaps the most fascinating being his series of scrapbooks compiled over several decades. Filled with programs, press releases and advertisements all annotated by LaRocca himself, these five scrapbooks track the life of LaRocca and the legacy of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band through his eyes.  To peruse the holdings of the entire LaRocca Collection, visit our Archival Collections tab to view the finding aid and associated digital content.
