The Stanford Archive of Recorded Sound is pleased to announce the appointment of Erin Hurley as Project Archivist for the San Francisco Traditional Jazz Foundation Collection project. Erin will be processing this collection, creating the finding aid, and selecting materials for digitization to make this jazz collection accessible.

Prior to coming to Stanford, Erin was an archivist for Special Collections at the Getty Research Institute where she processed the records of the M. Knoedler & Co. gallery including photographs, negatives, and a wide range of documents. She also worked at UCLA’s William Andrews Clark Memorial Library in Los Angeles where she appraised, arranged and described a collection of Victorian letters, drawings, photographs, and scrapbooks. Erin has degrees from UCLA (MLIS) specializing in Archival studies and Informatics, and from Oberlin College (B.A.) in English and Art History. Erin’s work with eclectic archival collections will be an asset in dealing with the wide range of materials found in the Jazz Foundation Collection. We’re very happy to welcome Erin to the Archive of Recorded Sound staff.
