Before there was a historic house museum, there were 72 boxes of Louis Armstrong’s artifacts located at the Rosenthal Library at Queens College/CUNY in New York City. The story of how those boxes got there and grew into the worlds largest archives dedicated to a jazz musician is a true credit to both Louis and Lucille Armstrong. Throughout his storied career, Louis Armstrong entertained countless fans around the world onstage with his show-stopping live performances. But offstage, Armstrong was dedicated to documenting the story of his life, writing autobiographical stories, recording reel-to-reel tapes, designing collages, annotating photographs and compiling scrapbooks, doing so “for posterity.” Louis Armstrong passed away in 1971 in his Corona, Queens home. What was left with his wife … [Continue reading...]
