Louis Armstrong Gets New Web Site


The Louis Armstrong House & Archives has a newly redesigned web site, www.stachmo.net. Designed by Alf Interactive and launched on Feb. 11, the site is the authorized and definitive Web site
honoring Louis Armstrong.

Visitors to the site can learn about Satchmo, his house, and the collections at the Archives. Alf Interactive worked with LAHA to organize and prepare its wealth of material, including photos, video and audio clips, and writings. The Web site captures Satchmo’s warmth and excitement and provides visitors with a virtual museum experience.

In 1943, Armstrong and his wife, Lucille, bought a modest house in Queens, and lived there for the rest of their lives. After Armstrong’s death in 1971, Lucille donated Louis’ massive collection of notes, recordings, and photographs to Queens College. The Louis Armstrong Archives has attracted scholars and musicians from all over the world to Queens College. Today, the College is working to open the Louis Armstrong House as a public museum and educational center.

    “I have no concept of what I did before! That’s irrelevant,” Ibrahim said. “I can’t change anything. I can’t change the past, I can’t change the future, I can only deal with what is now.”
