Thanks for that. While searching around the Cultural Equity site I came across the following quote from the FBI file on Alan Lomax.

"Neighborhood investigation shows him to be a very peculiar individual in that he is only interested in folk lore music, being very temperamental and ornery. …. He has no sense of money values, handling his own and Government property in a neglectful manner, and paying practically no attention to his personal appearance. … He has a tendency to neglect his work over a period of time and then just before a deadline he produces excellent results." (from the FBI file on Alan Lomax, 1940–1980)

Goddamn pinkos :-)
