    Immediate Source of Acquisition

    The J. Roger Hamilton Collection of Monterey Jazz Festival Posters was acquired by the Stanford Archive of Recorded Sound from J. Roger Hamilton in 2021.

    Biographical / Historical

    J. Roger Hamilton was a regular attendee at Monterey Jazz Festival, sitting with his family annually in the center aisle, row 8 every year. During the first two days of the festival he would purchase the Earl Newman printed posters to ensure he had one for that year. The posters in this collection were on display at his home for many years before donation to the Stanford Libraries.
