Thread Name: John Dwyer - Songs & Stories
Subject: RE: John Dwyer - Songs&Stories
John Ross' suggestions have found a great deal of support here in Vancouver. We have tapes going back to the founding of the Folk Song Circle in 1959. Nothing lasts forever and we need to start urgent thinking about how best to preserve our own history and in what format. I am going to use John's very well-thought-out draft Project as a base for our own, with perhaps local funding and copies or links to everyone else. But regardless of where the material is STORED (a question becoming more and more academic when one asks oneself where one's emails are stored), we certainly could use a Finding Aid or three for North West folk materials. Are there any, um, librarians or archivists in our midst?
