Bruce Springsteen Archive Coming to Monmouth University

While it takes Bruce Springsteen close to four hours to effectively revisit the four-plus decades of his career in concert, the Boss needed just 90 minutes to chronicle his life story at New Jersey's Monmouth University.

The rocker's personal collection of written works, photographs, magazines and other artifacts from throughout his career will make up the new Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music.

Brown said, "The establishment of The Bruce Springsteen Archives and Center for American Music celebrates and reinforces the Jersey Shore's legacy in the history of American music, while providing a truly transformative experience for our students". The materials will be available to classes throughout the University, especially its music business program. Monmouth already houses some 35,000 pieces of Springsteen memorabilia in its mostly fan-compiled Bruce Springsteen Special Collection, but the new Center for American Music will expand beyond the one performer. The collection began at the Asbury Park Public Library and now boasts almost 35,000 items, many of them donated by fans.

Monmouth officials also announced that the university will be home to Springsteen's archives.
