Thread Name: Obit: Seattle's John Ross, Mudcatter, April 2009
Subject: RE: Obit: Seattle's John Ross, Mudcatter, April 09
Judging from conversations that John and I had regarding writing histories of folk music in the Pacific Northwest, and archiving the many, many tapes of local singers, I believe there is considerably more at stake than John's "Sergeant Pepper" albums, if, indeed, he had any.

I understand the necessity for dispatch, and I would most certainly like to be able to do something in John's behalf, but there are people out there who knew John far better than I did and who knew much more about his family and background.

And, Mary, are you sure that all those books were written by the John Ross in question? I recognize a couple of titles (computer related books), but many on that list are in areas that I never associated with what I understood to be John's areas of interest.
