Crawdaddy! founder Paul Williams, widely considered to be the creator of modern rock’n’roll criticism, has died. Denise Sullivan, who wrote for the 1990s revival of the publication that started in 1966 offers a tribute:
RIP Paul Williams (1948-2013)
The library has a near-complete run of Crawdaddy! from both its original run, which ended in 1978, and its 1990s resurrection. You can find our holdings in our Local Periodicals List. As you'll note, our copies are housed in the Annex, which means that if you are interested in viewing them, you will need to allow time for staff to retrieve them. Professional staff is available to help you Monday-Friday from 8:45 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and during limited hours on evenings and weekends. Even if a professional staff member is not available when you visit, one of our student workers can help you complete a request form so that we can view the desired periodicals for when you return.
