The Special Collections of the University of North Texas Music Library houses over 600 publicity shots, donated by Kenton’s publicist in the 60s, Noel Wedder. The first three series here come from that collection.

The series of photos from the 70s were taken by Terry Vosbein. The Bob Graettinger graphs are a few examples from the hundreds of colorful pre-compositional sketches of the avant grade composer. The Progressive Jazz pictures are by William Gottlieb, and the photographer of the 1956 tour is unknown.
