Just as the city of Memphis helped shape Elvis Presley to become The King of Rock ‘n’ Roll, so too did Elvis leave his indelible stamp on the city he loved.
Two Memphis institutions – The Commercial Appeal and Elvis Presley Enterprises – have jointly opened up their archives to offer a unique portrait of the city and the man. You will find hundreds of photos, articles, artifacts, front pages, quotes and a comprehensive timeline that tells this remarkable story. Many of the images inside are extremely rare – culled through extensive research by staff librarians and archivists. Elvis Presley’s Memphis is a must-have collection for all fans of the king – and all fans of Memphis!
