Correspondence by date 1965-2008

Physical Description: 78 boxes

Scope and Contents note

Correspondence that came into the Grateful Dead office(s) concerning concerts, band members, and the surrounding scene, including mail addressed directly to Eileen Law or Gary Lambert, among others, as well as to the Grateful Dead Ticketing Service, and band members themselves. There are occasionally responses either collected directly with a letter or filed under the appropriate date.

Arrangement note

Materials in this series are arranged chronologically, based on the original order used at the offices of the Grateful Dead. Selected material was either separated out by their office staff upon receipt, or, if because of format (e.g., audio or video media, oversize artwork, manuscripts, etc.) by archives processing staff. Dates imposed by processing staff are in brackets.
