Welcome to Dead Central, the blog for the Grateful Dead Archive at UC Santa Cruz! We’ve seen a lot of interest and enthusiasm about the archive since the offical press conference at the Fillmore on April 24. People have been interested in the arrival date of the archive, the contents, accessibility and how they can contribute to the development and organization of the archive. We’ll use this blog to keep everyone informed about the status of the archive as well as news and updates on all things related to the Grateful Dead and associated archives. We welcome comments and feedback from everyone!
