This collection contains photographs of jazz musicians by the photographer, Mitchell Seidel. Notable performers photographed within this collection include Art Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie, Buddy Rich, Freddie Hubbard, Philly Joe Jones, members of the Marsalis family, and George Duvivier. Also of note in this collection are images of Thelonious Monk's funeral, as well as, photographs of the Newport Jazz Festival and Kool Jazz Festival (1977-1988).
The Newport Jazz Festival records (1954-1995) consist of two linear feet of historic materials, including minutes, correspondance, notes, legal documents and publications housed in two document boxes and four clamshell boxes. The bulk of the manuscript material covers the years 1954-1959, indeed there are no extant administrative records of the Newport Jazz Festival after 1959. The collection contains, however, a full run of official programs and schedules of the festival with some gaps.
