Would that be Duane Niatum? I used to be in touch with him. He retired from teaching a number of years ago but I hope he is still writing.

My father (John Dwyer of Marysville, WA) recorded a lot of the song circle groups he attended in Washington and BC and was an old friend of the late Phil Thomas. I will be keeping track of who sings what on the tapes when I get to transcribing the material from those meetings. Before I retire, I hope. If he sang this on any tapes I'll post a note about it.
