Subject: RE: Ewan MacColl and Stalin
London Folkie, I spent some time with Alex Campbell about a year before his death. He confirmed that he had married Peggy Seeger "platonically" in order to get British citizenship for her. MacColl was unable to do this himself as he was married at the time. I understood this to have taken place in Britain, rather than the U.S. Perhaps others, who knew Alex better than I did, might shed some light on this.
