As the Louis Armstrong House Museum tweeted yesterday, their Museum Collections are available for online browsing:
The Louis Armstrong House Museum holds the world's largest archives devoted to a single jazz musician. Its collections encompass more than 5,000 sound recordings, 15,000 photographs, 30 films, 100 scrapbooks, 20 linear feet of letters and papers, and six trumpets.
Researchers, record companies, publishers, film producers, public school students, and many others routinely use these materials. Since 1994, more than a dozen books and recordings have been published based on research from the collections, including Terry Teachout's Pops, a notable book of 2010.
New records will be updated and added continuously, by the end of 2011, the Museum's entire catalog will be online. At the moment, the catalog contains the Louis Armstrong Collection, the Jack Bradley Collection and the Louis Armstrong House Collection.
