Michael S Obit: Archie Green (22 March 2009)-Memorial Jun 21 (64* d) RE: Obit: Archie Green 23 Mar 09


Mark-- that is my book. The last time I saw Archie -- maybe a year-plus since I'm no longer in SF--he gave me a bound reprint of his seminal article from the '50s on hillbilly music. I wish I had asked him to sign it. Did he sign your stuff in green ink? He sent me a few notes with that green signature-- an endearing affectation. Through a third party who's talked to Archie's son, I learned that the family understands the need to have some public memorial in the future. If you learn of that, would you post the info here or PM me, and I'll do the same for you. I hope this note hasn't gotten too personal for the Cat, but for those Catters who don't know of Archie, read his Wikipedia page and learn about an interesting guy.

Cheers,
Michael
