Subject: RE: 'Woody Guthrie, American Radical'
Will -- I just picked up this thread and am delighted to find it and your book, which I shall have ASAP. I spent a day a couple of years ago with Stetson Kennedy at his home, and Arlo upon his first visit to Beluthahatchee. One of the best days of my life in a very private and intimate bit of communion. This (about 10 miles from our home) is where Woody and Stetson armed themselves against the Klan. Stetson produced a cardboard box full of correspondence from Woody, put it in Arlo's lap and said "Here's Woody in a box"... personal letters, lyric ideas. We were all moved to tears... Looking forward to the read!
