 About the Bill Russell Lecture

The annual Bill Russell Lecture honors the noted jazz historian, born Russell William Wagner (1905-1992), and is dedicated to New Orleans jazz. Russell's research focused on traditional New Orleans-style jazz and related musical forms such as brass band, ragtime and gospel music. He amassed an extensive collection of memorabilia, including musical instruments, records, piano rolls, sheet music, photographs, books and periodicals. These materials trace the development of jazz in New Orleans and follow the movement of musicians to New York, Chicago, California and beyond.

The William Russell Jazz Collection-permanently housed at the Williams Research Center-encompasses Russell's research, audiotapes, programs, posters, correspondence, films, business cards, notes, clippings and scrapbooks. The Russell Collection is available to the public at the Williams Research Center, located at 410 Chartres St. and open Tuesday-Saturday, 9:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For more information on this collection, visit the institution, call (504) 523-4662 or email wrc@hnoc.org.
