VD SONGS (1940s)

RAMBLIN' JACK ELLIOTT:
I suppose I taught Bobby a few of my songs. Those old VD songs by Woody that nobody wanted the young kids to know, he picked them up from me....

TRANSCRIPTION OF 1945 MIMEOGRAPHED SONGBOOK

LYNNE HARRISON (lynneh@lynxus.com)
wrote on Jan 08, 2000:

Searching the web tonight trying to find some information on Woody Guthrie.... Specifically, wondering if there is a museum that might be interested in archiving an original songbook. (mimeographed, hand-painted cover (watercolors) doodles, notes, etc... copyright April 3, 1945 Ten Songs).
I have had this songbook for many years and only recently realized exactly what it is... I think it belongs in a museum... I would like to put it in the "right" place on permanent loan or at the very least make sure I am storing it properly. Is there a Woody Guthrie Museum somewhere? I could bring it by the Country Music Hall of Fame (I'm in Nashville), but I don't know if they would be interested, or if this would be appropriate... My other thought is the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. I am writing to you because you had the best web-site I saw...
