Suffet Woody Rediscovered in Poughkeepsie NY (21) RE: Woody Rediscovered in Poughkeepsie NY 09 Sep 10


SRS,

The Woody Guthrie Archives is a non-for-profit organization established by Woody's daughter, Nora Guthrie. It is not affiliated with any university or other institution. However, it has managed to raise the funds it needs to do a excellent job and to hire a top-notch professional staff. The current Curator is Jorge Arevao and the current Archivist is Tiffany Colannino, and both stand ready to make the WGA accessible to researchers.

I should mention that the songs I do are not ones that I discovered in the WGA. Instead they are ones I learned from old songbooks, periodicals, and recordings, or from people who knew Woody. However, I have asked the previous Archivist Hillel Arnold to compare some of what I have against what is in the WGA. In many instances he found multiple versions of a particular song. Hillel, by the way, now works at the New York University Library where he spend his days archiving The Daily Worker files.
