"Another man done gone!" How sad to lose this terrific human being and scholar. I worked with Archie during the Bicentennial Folklife Festival and treasure a photo I have singing at one of the "Workers in America" stages with Archie, Joe Glazer and a group of workers. Joe is also gone, but the struggle continues and so do the songs. His "Only A Miner" is one of the best books on the history of the American working song. His work helped preserve and continue the working person's song tradition.
