babypix Obit: Hamilton Camp (2 Oct 2005) (42) Obit: Our friend, Hamilton Camp 05 Oct 05

I am very sad to report that our friend and fellow traveler, Hamilton (aka Bob or Hamid) Camp has died at age 70. Ham, as he signed his letters, was part of the short-lived, but dynamic duo of Gibson & Camp who recorded the wonderful, "Gibson & Camp at the Gate of Horn" once, and then again, 35 years later--revisited.

Ham was a hilarious mimic, great raconteur, singer-songwriter, human bean, and devoted father and grandfather. Born in England to a theatrical family, Hamilton was a child actor who went on to be featured in many films and television programs including "Bird" directed by Clint Eastwood, and the voice of some of the Smurfs in the cartoon series.

We interviewed him in his L.A. home last year for our television series, now in production: "Word of Mouth:The Journey of American Folk Music" (formerly "Where Have All The Folkies Gone?"

Looks like Gibson & Camp are together again. May they rest in peace.
