Erroll Garner Archive @ Pitt

Worth A Thousand Words


There are over 8,000 photographs in the Erroll Garner Archive. In these photos, we see Erroll at the piano, laughing with his friends, working in the studio, performing at concerts, attending award receptions, posing with Martha, working with and meeting other celebrities, and taking headshots. Some of the photos in the collection are professionally done, while others catch the more candid side of Erroll's life. All of them reveal the musician at work, at play, and truly enjoying his career in music.

A complete inventory of this series can be found in the collection guide, Boxes 41-55.
