Jersey School Lands Springsteen Archive

Nearly 15,000 pieces documenting the life and career of Jersey native Bruce Springsteen will be moved from the Asbury Park Public Library to Monmouth University in West Long Branch on November 1.  The relocation of the 14,900 documents in the collection will both insure that they are better preserved and provide greater access to the public, according to University officials.  The coup for the school was achieved with the help of an influential Monmouth alum, Robert Santelli, Executive Director of the Grammy Museum in LA.  The plan also had the backing of Backstreet Magazine editor, Christopher Phillips, who also presides as the President of the Friends of the Bruce Springsteen Special Collection.  Presumably the Boss had to endorse the idea of moving the collection, which he jokingly referred to as having more stuff in it '...than every place except my mother's basement!'.
Viewings of materials in the collection will be by appointment weekdays between 9am and 5pm. They can be arranged by calling 732-571-3512.
