Originals die away slowly in the archives. That's what archives are for.

The archives of the Bay Area rock band the Grateful Dead …are headed to UC Santa Cruz, where they will be displayed at McHenry Library.
The archive, which occupies 2,000 square feet of a Marin warehouse, contains thousands of pieces.
The library already has the archives of science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein and Beat poet, painter and novelist Kenneth Patchen and the only intact collection of photographer Edward Weston's project prints in the world. But the Dead archive will be the university's biggest.
