Report: “Springsteen’s ‘Glory Days’ Now Climate-Controlled” (A Visit to the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music)

From Inside Jersey/

Like many mothers of rock ‘n’ roll stars, Adele Springsteen kept scrapbooks stuffed with newspaper clippings, magazine articles, fan letters and so on — memories of her son’s rise from unknown to household name. Those scrapbooks, along with some 35,000 other items — everything from academic papers to backstage passes, bumper stickers, posters, CDs and DVDs — have a permanent home at the Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music.

The archives are housed in a climate-controlled building on the campus of Monmouth University in West Long Branch, which became the official Springsteen-endorsed repository for historical items related to him in January 2017.
