This collection comprises David Lemieux’s concert taping equipment, used to record more than 40 Grateful Dead concerts, 1989-1991.
David Hardy Lemieux (November 8, 1970- ) is an audio and film archivist by training, and serves as the Grateful Dead’s Legacy
Manager and Vault Archivist. Originally from Ottawa, Ontario, he graduated from Carleton University with a BA in history,
going on to earn a BFA in film studies from Concordia University and an MA in film archiving from the University of East Anglia.
He first went to work for the Grateful Dead in 1999, working under Vault Archivist Dick Latvala to catalog the band’s video
holdings; when Latvala died that year, Lemieux was hired to be his successor. Lemieux has overseen and produced dozens of
archival releases by the Grateful Dead and several by Jerry Garcia; the Dead’s newest archival release series, Dave’s Picks,
honors his work. In addition to his duties for the band, Lemieux hosts a daily radio show, Today in Grateful Dead History,
broadcast on Sirius Satellite Radio and XM Satellite Radio, and serves as editor of the newsletter of the Association of Moving
Image Archivists. He is a voting member of the Grammies and serves on the Board of Directors of the Victoria Film Festival
in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. A much-requested guest lecturer, he also gives conference presentations on his work
to a wide variety of academic, professional, and community groups.
