- Below are the Finding Aids which contextualize and inventory the collections at the Woody Guthrie Center Archives. The Woody Guthrie Archive was originally processed by Musicologist and Archivist Jorge’ Arevalo Mateus, Phd, and is the largest collection of Woody Guthrie primary resource materials in the world.
- The archives was transferred to Tulsa from Mount Kisco, New York, with the help of Archivist Tiffany Colannino. Colannino (who managed and headed the archives while they resided in New York) was consulted for the design of the research room, the vault, and she also ensured safe travel for the artifacts and manuscripts to their new home.
- The archives is currently headed by Archivist Kate L. Blalack, MLIS, CA. She can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Current Interns: Cameron Albrecht, Mac Sanders and Peter Addison. For more information about archival internships see: https://woodyguthriecenter.org/center/internship-opportunities/
- We continue to add to our growing research collection. If you are interested in donating to our materials please see: https://woodyguthriecenter.org/archives/donate/
- The archives research room is open for researchers M-F, 9-5, and not open on weekends or holidays. A research application must be submitted and approved prior to scheduling an appointment with the archivist. For questions about this process please contact our archivist, Kate L. Blalack, MLIS, CA.
