Grateful Dead in the Bob Fitch contact sheets

This is a guest post from Bob Fitch Project Archivist, Gurudarshan Khalsa.

We recently completed digitizing the many contact sheets in the Bob Fitch Photography Archive. Thanks Griselda Mercado!  And thanks to Michelle Paquette and the team at the Digital Library Systems and Services, the contact sheets are now available online. The Bob Fitch Photography Archive consists of the work of photojournalist and activist Bob Fitch documenting the civil rights movement, farmworkers movement, peace movement and other social justice causes from the 1960s to the mid-2000s.
