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