1995 Louis Armstrong 'Portrait'Teejerker
In 1991 Queens College, City University of New York began to create Louis Armstrong Archives, in order to preserve the legacy of one of Jazz's greatest artists. The then-president of Queens College, Dr. Shirley Strum Kenny, was quoted in New York Times in 1987 saying that what was missing in the numerous biographies of Armstrong was a complete picture, "a sense of the man's personality." This, she hinted, would change within the next few years. The college had acquired a trove of Armstrong memorabilia including journals, writings, and unreleased recordings that had never before been seen. This 1995 t-shirt features Armstrong's signature along with a photograph, commemorating the Queen's archives that are still open today.
