Author Biography - Nora Guthrie

Woodrow Wilson Guthrie was born on July 14, 1912, in Okemah, Oklahoma, Having lived through some of the most significant historic movements and events of the Twentieth-Century--the Great Depression, the Great Dust Storm, World War II, the social and the political upheavals resulting from Unionism, the Communist Party and the Cold War--Woody absorbed it all to become a prolific writer whose songs, ballads, prose and poetry captured the plight of every man. Nora Guthrie is Woody's daughter and, since she opened the Woody Guthrie Archives in 1996 it has been a major success becoming an important resource for the general public, musicians, singers, songwriters, scholars, and public and private cultural institutions wishing to access the collection. Nora's goal is to "Invoke a community togetherness that isn't there at the moment and trying to achieve everything Woody strove for. You have to go where people are, emotionally and politically. It's a gradual and slow process. It's not blaming people."
