Thread Name: How can one meet (or write) Pete Seeger?
Subject: RE: How can one meet (or write) Pete Seeger?
I went to college with his son Dan, and dropped him a note last summer when I was planning to visit Bannerman Castle near where he lives. Got a nice reply and he even added his unlisted phone number. He also expressed a keen interest in Instant Runoff Voting which is being tried here in Vermont. He always sends a brief "Thank You" on a postal card whenever I send him an article on the topic.
As late as last fall he and some friends stage a peace vigil in Wappengers Falls at noon every Sunday. I joined them in mid November and it was an honor, but the talk at the time was that they would abandon this due to both Pete's age and the coming of winter. If they continue to do this you could always join them.....
