Folk singer-songwriter Woody Guthrie dies at the age of 55 from complications due to Huntington’s disease.  Many of Guthrie’s songs were born from his experiences and his travels with migrant workers during the Great Depression.  “I am out to sing songs that will prove to you that this is your world,” he said.  “I am out to sing songs that make you take pride in yourself and your work.”

One thought on “October 3, 1967

  1. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
