Singer/Activist Pete Seeger Died Yesterday

Peter Seeger died yesterday at the age of 94. He had a long history as a folksinger/songwriter and political activist. He worked for civil rights, antiwar and environmental causes. The New York Times has an article on his life at: Pete Seeger, Songwriter and Champion of Folk Music, Dies at 94 – NYTimes.com.

One of my strongest memories of Pete Seeger was his effort to restore the Hudson River through the Hudson River Sloop Clearwater organization.
