Subject: RE: Obit: Archie Green (22 March 2009)
What wonderful tributes to a dear man. My connection with Archie was through my then-husband, Joe Hickerson, when Joe was head of the folk archive at the Library of Congress. We shared some social occasions and I was always struck by the twinkling good humor and down-to-earth connectedness that Archie unfailingly showed to those he met--whoever they were. It amazed me that he could be such a world-class scholar AND such a genuinely nice man. That he was loved by those who knew him shines through in this thread. Thanks to all who shared your stories.

p.s. WAMU-FM's Kojo Nambde (sp?) did a lovely 20-minute interview about Archie's life with Peggy Bulger today between 1:40 and 2:00 p.m. If it's archived, maybe somebody could post a link.
