Woody and Marjorie Guthrie
Woodrow Woody Guthrie (July 14, 1912-October 3, 1967) American songwriter; guitar, mandolin, fiddle, harmonica player; father of eight children; inspired by Dust Bowl, Leadbelly, American travels; dead-set influence on Ramblin' Jack Elliott and Bob Dylan. Encouraged to write his autobiography by folklorist Alan Lomax, the rambler did — Bound For Glory, published by Dutton in the center of WW2 — my G.I. father gave me his worn copy the year Guthrie died in 1967, (the same year Dylan returned to acoustic music and released his 8th album John Wesley Harding) — one of the great books handed down.
