Desert Dancer Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015) (79* d) RE: Obit: Jean Ritchie (1922-2015) 12 Jun 15


Beautiful pictures from the collection of the American Folklife Center, and remembrances, here: Jean Ritchie, 1922-2015. Because there are so many pictures, as well as a few sound links, I'm not copying the text here, but highly recommend viewing the page.

Stephen Winick says, "The whole AFC staff was saddened by the death of Jean Ritchie earlier this month. We paid tribute to her immediately in a Facebook post, which you can see here, and the Chairman of our Board of Trustees, C. Kurt Dewhurst, made a moving statement about Jean at the Board's June meeting. However, I felt a fuller and more public statement about Jean was still appropriate. In addition, because Ritchie's husband was the outstandingly talented photographer George Pickow, we have many beautiful pictures of Jean to share. For this appreciation of Jean and George, I drew heavily on an article written by our retired archive head, Michael Taft, for Folklife Center News. Enough material is new in this article, and enough of that older article was contributed by me as editor, that this piece should be considered co-authored by Stephen Winick and Michael Taft. "
