Via Facebook, The American Folklife Center says,

It's Alan Lomax's birthday today. Born in 1915, the former "Assistant in Charge" of the Archive of American Folk Song was an internationally known folklorist, author, radio broadcaster, filmmaker, concert and record producer, and TV host. Lomax amassed one of the most important collections of ethnographic material in the world now archived at the AFC. For more information see: http://www.loc.gov/folklife/lomax/.

Happy birthday, Alan!
