These research files contain the newspaper clippings, ephemera, and photographs used by Vicki Welch Ayo and William C. DeLaVergne.
Starting with "Boys Fom Houston: The Spirit and Image of Our Music," Vicki Welch Ayo wrote about the varied Houston music scenes of the 1960s-1970s. She and fellow writer William C. DeLaVergne followed it up with "Boys From Houston II: Deep in the Heart." In 2016, Ayo published a third book in the series, "Boys From Houston III: Groove-In." The books aim to chronicle Houston's and by extension the region's thriving music scenes and their affects on the community.
