"Waiting" by Stephen Longstreet (b.1907) is an undated watercolor and ink drawing from the Stephen Longstreet Papers in the Department of Special Collections at the University of Chicago (UC) Library. Longstreet, an artist and jazz histo­rian, recorded his involvement in the jazz scene in journals, sketchbooks, paintings, and draw­ings. The relationship between Chicago and jazz is the focus of the Chicago Jazz Archive at the UC Library. The archive collects primary sources that document the history of jazz as it was cre­ated and played in Chicago. (Illustration repro­duced by permission of the artist.)
