Presented by Jeff Schwartz (Director, Chuck Boyd Photo Collection)
Photographer Chuck Boyd was embedded in the Los Angeles rock & roll scene of the 1960s. A professional photographer, he left behind a collection of nearly 30,000 images of music legends spanning two decades. His photo collection is now overseen by Jeff Schwartz and Chuck’s siblings. Jeff is an award-winning teacher, author, and music historian. He will share images from Chuck’s archives, discuss “rock & roll archaeology,” and talk about Chuck’s life and the challenges of directing a photo archive.
