Did you know Jeff Nuttall? We are working on an exciting new oral history project and want to get in touch with anyone who knew or worked with Jeff. The project aims to capture and record memories of people who knew Jeff, both personally and professionally. These recordings will make up a digital sound archive which will supplement our written collection of Jeff Nuttall’s papers in the Special Collections of the University of Manchester Library.
Jeff was a Lancashire-born poet, artist, jazz musician, novelist, social commentator, critic and teacher who was at the centre of the 1960s international underground and has been the subject of the Off Beat exhibition currently on display at the John Rylands Library. This exhibition closes on 5th March so make sure you visit in the next three weeks to avoid disappointment! A great opportunity to visit would be on Thursday 16th February, when the Library will be hosting Rip It Up: A Celebration of the Counter-Culture. Follow this link for more information.
If you knew, or are in contact with anyone who knew Jeff, and think that your memories could contribute to Jeff’s archive, we want to hear from you. Please contact Imogen Durant and George Bickers: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
