It was known as Los Angeles State College, Northridge, not to be confused with Los Angeles Valley Junior College.

The dismissal of the early 40's/WWII generation of folk music exponents is premature.

It shows a narrowness of appreciation for the contributions of many who are today not recognized from that period. They are around but not as celebrities.

Folk music extends further than the revival that took place in the 40's emanating from the Left.

The reference to the 40's intimates that this is what constitutes the whole of folk music
and it isn't true.
