The Bob Dylan Archive, a collection of 6,000 items spanning the career of the folk artist, was recently acquired by the George Kaiser Family Foundation and The University of Tulsa. The archive—to be curated for public exhibitions—includes artifacts such as an early draft of “Subterranean Homesick Blues“; lyrics used on 1975’s No. 1 album Blood on the Tracks; and handwritten lyrics for “Chimes of Freedom,” written on hotel stationery.
