History Through the Eyes of Pete Seeger

The New Haven Register interviewed Rob Rosenthal, provost and vice president for academic affairs, John E. Andrus professor of sociology, about his book compiling folk singer Pete Seeger’s private letters, notes and writings. Rosenthal and his son Sam were granted access to Seeger’s barn, which contained a treasure trove of documents from the 93-year-old activist and singer’s life.
