Susan of DT Obit: Dick Greenhaus (1929-2019) Memorial - Apr. 6 (124* d) Obit: Dick Greenhaus 1929-2019 06 Jan 19


Dick Greenhaus died January 5 at our retirement community in Lansdale, PA. Dick was responsible for developing the Digital Tradition database in 1988, which, in turn, when later posted here, aided the popularity of the mudcat website. (See the blurb from the DT here, VERY outdated. Dick was into folk music since the 1940s in New York City. He was a professional accompanist on guitar and banjo. After training as a chemist, he was employed as several kinds of engineer, including stints at Monsanto, Playtex, and Consumer Reports, among others. He acquired CAMSCO Music to sell traditional folk music CDs, both at festivals and online/phone. The thrust of CAMSCO changed to book publishing, jointly with Loomis House Press, as festivals vanished and we got too old to schlep the CDs around to festivals.

We are planning a memorial gathering, probably in March at our retirement community in Lansdale, PA - northern suburb of Philadelphia, just off the Northeast Extension of the Pennsy Turnpike and on the SEPTA regional rail line. Please PM me if you would like to attend, so I can work out the details and keep you informed (include your email).
