Thread Name: info about Paul Clayton??
Subject: RE: info about Paul Clayton??
Sad to hear about Paul committing suicide. I knew Paul in Paris when we both lived in a youth hostel. He was keeping out of the Korean war I think. 1951. He collected old newspapers and sold them to buy food. He was a generous, lovely man. If he was gay he didnt know it then. I have a couple of forty fives he sent me a few years later. He told me Burl Ives would be singing his song Lenora let your hair hang down on tv and I watched it. By this time i was married and didnt keep up the correspondence. I listened to him sing gotta travel on lots of times. I always thought it was I've laid around not Done laid around. I will have to find my record and if possible play it. He also used to sing Peggy O I hope someone reads this Paul was my first love and I have a small photo of us together in Paris. Maggie
