Grammy Museum Grant

The Hogan Jazz Archive of the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library has received a grant from the Grammy Museum to digitize and preserve unique recordings from Vernon Winslow (G ’69), the first African American disc jockey in New Orleans. Winslow (1911-1993) is best remembered for his pioneering work as “Dr. Daddy-O” on WWEZ radio. Once digitized, the recordings will be accessible to the public online.
