Description of the Sun Ra Collection

Sun Ra Research is a an oral history project conducted by John and Peter Hinds. Since 1995 the Hinds brothers have published their interviews with the jazz musician Sun Ra and members of his band, the Arkestra, in their magazine Sun Ra research. This collection features fully text searchable digital versions of the original issues of Sun Ra Research, and a single issue (all published) of the Sun Ra Quarterly. This digital collection is a collaborative enterprise between John and Peter Hinds and the Department of Special Collections and Archives, Burke Library, Hamilton College. Future additions to the collection may include transcriptions of additional, previously unpublished interviews with Sun Ra and the Arkestra.
