Interview with Archie Green (Day 2): Part 1
From University Archives
The Campus Folksong Club's (CFC) Oral Histories Project includes interviews with former students, faculty and associates, and performers with ties to the Club. Interviews concern these individuals' academic and professional backgrounds; their perspective on the CFC; the Club's role in the folksong movement of the 1960s and the role it played in their lives. In this recording, Archie Green discusses his education and work background.
The CFC was known for the culture it
brought to campus, hosting big-name artists on campus during biweekly
events, producing 3 LPs, and publishing a monthly newsletter named
Autoharp, but its most groundbreaking work was recording interviews with
local Illinois musicians, a task usually left to professionals.
