Thread Name: Pete Seeger to the Library of Congress!
Subject: Pete Seeger to the Library of Congress!
Hello all. As Pete Seeger's biographer, over the years I have donated the assorted interviews, files, and ephemera I've collected on him to the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress. I'm proud, though perhaps a bit unwilling, to say the last of my Seeger collection will be delivered to the Library of Congress later this year--appropriate as Seeger's centenary is this spring. These last few bits include an extensive collection of Seeger's vinyl albums and CDs, as well as personal recordings of mine dating as far back as the late 70's. My current LOC interview collection can be found on the Library of Congress website as the David Dunaway Collection of Interviews with Pete Seeger and Contemporaries.
I'll be back with more news of this transfer, as well as my plans for Pete Seeger's centenary.
