Jane Scott, dubbed "The World's Oldest Rock Critic," had a career spanning nearly 50 years writing for the Cleveland Plain Dealer, and her papers provide valuable insight into rock and roll music, its performers, and influence both local and national. The Jane Scott Papers span the years 1937-2011, including undated materials.
The Michael Ochs Collection spans the years 1948 to 1994, with the bulk of the material dating between 1975 and 1985. The documents pertain to Ochs’ career as a rock and roll photographer, his career as a publicist for Columbia Records, the courses he taught at UCLA, and his radio programs. The collection provides rich documentation of both Ochs’ role in the rock and roll music industry and a history of the rock and roll genre itself.

The collection provides insight to the psychedelic artwork associated with the music of the 1960s, while also illustrating how concert poster art had evolved by the 1990s.
