Subject: RE: How can one meet (or write) Pete Seeger?
Pete is one who very much appreciates people and times that stand
out in the memory. He's one who seems to remember just about
everyone he ever met, and can recall a shared time that stood
out for him. Pete may loom larger-then-life until you've met

everyone into the act.
All that said, about the best thing you could do for him
would be to send him a card and tell him about one thing
that you'll never forget that his music has taught you,
and say thanks.
If you send along a donation to the Beacon Sloop Club, who
operate his dear Clearwater and Woody Guthrie, that would
be a tangible appreciation that I'm sure would be most
