    Biographical History

    The David Dodd Grateful Dead collection consists of original and photocopied printed source material about the Grateful Dead musical group and their followers and fans, the Deadheads. Much of the material corresponds to listings in The Grateful Dead and the Deadheads: An Annotated Bibliography, written by David Dodd with Robert G. Weiner, and published by Greenwood Press in 1997 (Music Reference Collection, No. 60). David Dodd is also the author of The Annotated Grateful Dead Lyrics: a Web Site.
    The Grateful Dead were the longest living "acid" band to come out of San Francisco's psychedelic era. Even after more than 30 years of touring, playing, recording and partying, the "boys" still enticed thousands of fans the world over to venture out to catch a show time and time again.
