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....

LYNNE HARRISON (email@example.com) 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...
