I'm sure he'd have been a Mudcat regular, had it been around when he was. Yes, Bob, Burma. I found a note with the photo, I think his father sent the framed photos to his mother. It seems to say something about the Amazon, but perhaps that is a joke. :)

I'm trying to find Maggie Dwyer, concerning permission to use her father's "San Juan Pig War" in a reprint of a publication. If anyone can point me in her direction, I would be grateful!

Could someone help me connect with John Dwyer's daughter, Maggie? I am seeking permission to use John's song, "San Juan Pig War" in a small book publication, and need to contact someone with his estate.

Please contact me here:

Thanks!

There has been a steady trickle of interest in a few of Dad's songs to do with Pacific Northwest History. I have in my hands a book sent by Ms. Waring that is designed for use in home school settings. Westward Ho!: The Heart of the Old West is a beautiful book with a CD that has as its first half explanations of historic places, events, and activities, and the back of the book is the music and words to each song that illustrates the history. I'll read, listen, and post a review later.

Dad's song about the San Juan Pig War is the one used in this book.

Hi Maggie ...

The Pacidic Northwest Folklore Society puts out a bi-monthly on-line publication called "The Hoot." I've started a series of articles titled "Those Who Led The Way." And your father John certainly was one of the leaders. This next issue will feature Walt Robertson. After that, I'd like to feature Don Firth, and then your late father John Dwyer. I'll be in touch with you as I write that article. CHEERS, bob(deckman)nelson ... still safely hiding in Everett, Washington, where I see your father's beach house often.

The contents of my home office were rapidly packed into boxes in June (2019) when I needed to do major repair construction on a couple of rooms. The result is that as I put everything back I'm trying to be more orderly about where I place the various parts of my father's collection. There are boxes of books, of cassette tapes he recorded at many live events in the Pacific Northwest and in Vancouver, B.C., and boxes of notebooks, files, LPs, and even reel-to-reel tapes.

I retired a year ago and am to the point where I can tackle this job. Those of you who knew John Dwyer know he was a retired community college reference-librarian-pack-rat so the books are various and obscure. In the past I have used his books and notes to look up the words to songs for people, and now I may be in a better position for that, though the biggest task ahead is to build an Access database to catalog the contents of the cassette tapes.

When I get started I'll probably start a new thread for keeping people apprised of the progress or to ask questions they might have. This is a head's-up that I'm finally tackling the job.

Of less importance to me right now, but possibly of interest to Mudcat members, are all of the obscure cassette tapes he bought or was given by other people. I'll make a list of what they are, but as I work will decide how many layers of this onion I have to peel to end up with a good representation of his work in collecting and performing folk music in the Pacific Northwest. I'll have to determine if he learned songs from those cassettes or merely kept a robust collection. I suspect he had his own lending library going - there are quite a few things that say "Return to John Dwyer" on them. Old habits die hard.

Maggie
