The Collection

One of the world's largest and most comprehensive collections from a contemporary musician, The Brubeck Collection consists of Dave and Iola Brubeck's correspondence, legal and business documents, musical recordings, music manuscripts, photographs, printed programs, memorabilia, and other important archival material.

The Collection is a resource of immeasurable value for scholars interested in research concerning Brubeck's music, other musicians, and social issues such as civil rights, international relations, environmental concerns and social justice.

The Brubeck Collection is housed in the Holt-Atherton Special Collections at the University of the Pacific Library in Stockton, California. It is a major resource for planning, developing, and presenting the Institute's activities and events.

Our goal is to make the Collection widely available for research and educational activities through traveling exhibits, online access, and on-site exploration. You may contact the staff of the Special Collections Department here for further information.
