the Victorian Jazz Archive which regards this as one of the most
significant collections of both Australian and New Orleans jazz
to be donated. The collection is currently stored in the Eric J.
Brown Room of the Archive, recently refurbished to house his
collection, ensuring Eric's contribution to Australian jazz will
never be forgotten. Eric was a long-standing supporter of
the Victorian Jazz Archive and our registrar for many years.
