Our friends at Georgia State University house and manage the Johnny Mercer Collection that includes Johnny’s personal papers documenting his life and career. They also maintain an interactive exhibit dedicated to the songwriter.
The Johnny Mercer Collection within Georgia State University Library’s Special Collections and Archives includes draft lyrics and music, correspondence, unpublished autobiography, scripts, photographs, sheet music, sound recordings, awards and artifacts, as well as many additional collections and oral history interviews of colleagues, friends, and fans. The Library encourages researchers, educators, students, and fans of Johnny’s music to access their online resources and to contact them with any requests or questions.
In 2014, an overview of the Johnny Mercer Collection was featured on WSB-TV’s “Georgia Hidden Treasures.”
