Subject: Woody Guthrie Correspondence at LoC

This collection has been added recently to the American Memory project at the Library of Congress.

"Woody Guthrie and the Archive of American Folk Song: Correspondence, 1940-1950 highlights letters between Woody Guthrie and staff of the Archive of American Folk Song (now the Archive of Folk Culture, American Folklife Center) at the Library of Congress. The letters were written primarily in the early 1940s, shortly after Guthrie had moved to New York City and met the Archive's assistant in charge, Alan Lomax. In New York Guthrie pursued broadcasting and recording careers, meeting a cadre of artists and social activists and gaining a reputation as a talented and influential songwriter and performer. His written and, occasionally, illustrated reflections on his past, his art, his life in New York City, and the looming Second World War provide unique insight into the artist best-known for his role as "Dust Bowl balladeer." The online presentation contains fifty-three items (eighty-four pages) of manuscript material by, about, and to Woody Guthrie, from 1940 to 1950. It is selected from material in the Woody Guthrie Manuscript Collection and the American Folklife Center's correspondence files. The presentation includes a biographical essay; a timeline of Guthrie's life; and an encoded finding aid of Guthrie archival materials at the Library of Congress."

You might also look for an article published in the Library of Congress Folklife Center News (Spring 2001), "In Search of Woodie Guthrie at the Library of Congress". The author Mark Jackson, a PhD candidate has been doing research in the Folklife Center.

The issues of the Folklife Center News are now being put up on the web. Go to the site for the American Folklife Center and click to get into the publications link. There are incredible articles in this magazine and many back issues are up already. If the one I mentioned isn't yet, keep trying. It will be soon.
