Grateful Dead Archive Receives New Latvala Donation

(22)  10-in. reels; (17) 7-inch reels; Technics 1506 reel-to-reel recorder; 0.3 linear feet of files (clippings, correspondence and ephemera). Gift of Rich and Carol Latvala.

The Grateful Dead Archive is honored to announce the final accrual for the Dick Latvala Collection, a vital affiliated collection in the larger Grateful Dead Archive.  Personally delivered to UC Santa Cruz’s McHenry Library by Latvala’s son Rich, this generous gift completes the Latvala Collection with a number of important recordings, many in Dick’s inimitably hand-decorated boxes, along with a cache of files.
