The Fats Waller Multimedia Exhibit
From the Institute of Jazz Studies at Rutgers University (Newark campus) comes this digital exhibit of Fats Waller. This is one of five exhibits co-produced by the Institute and the Dana Library Media and Digital Services. Presented by staff members of the Institute as well as students from Rutgers, it is possible to view and enjoy a visual tour of Fats’ life via music scores, a selection of essential Waller recordings and a vast amount of images of Waller on tour in America, England and Scotland. Many of the rare items you can view here were provided through a donation of materials from the Ed Kirkeby (Waller’s manager from 1938-1943) Collection.
