JGJK: Eisenhower Auditorium, Penn State University, November 16, 1984

Archives of the Penn State Daily Collegian are available online at http://digitalnewspapers.libraries.psu.edu/, which might prove useful for others (I have found lots of Jerry-related stuff).

Just for giggles, I thought I'd post this little snippet from the police blotter over the weekend of the Jerry Garcia/John Kahn show (Robert Hunter opening) at Eisenhower Auditorium on 11/16/84:

Tee hee.

Good scheme, too bad it didn't work. Also funny to me because it's so east coast. Hard to imagine anyone at, say, CU-Boulder thinking a university blazer would draw attention away from them. :)



  1. how do you know this scam hadn't been a great winner for years? For all we know, the guy snuck into every concert for his entire college career, until this one.

    The scientific approach would be to swipe a CU blazer and walk into the next concert--it might be a proven winner of a strategy!

    The PSU digital archive is great.

  2. Ha!

    SUNY Stony Brook's is good too: https://dspace.sunyconnect.suny.edu/

    I am going to investigate more college papers.

    Northern New York Historical Papers also has some stuff at http://news.nnyln.net/
