Absolutely. I first heard of Archie when he was the advisor/mentor to the Univ. of Illinois Campus Folksong Club (see ) and I was active in Penn State's Folklore Society (we traded newsletters). I later got to know him both in DC, and in Philly when he was at Penn. I made it a point, whenever in the Bay Area, to visit him and Louanne at their SF home, and they always gave me a warm welcome and showed great interest in what I was up to. A great man who will be long-remembered.

"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."
