    Summary:

    Collection of manuscripts, including correspondence, journals, diaries, scrapbooks, clippings, artwork, and ephemera; photographic prints; and audio recordings comprising the archive of Israel (Izzy) Goodman Young, who was proprietor of the Folklore Center, New York, N.Y. (beginning in 1957), and then, beginning in 1973, of the Folklore Centrum, Stockholm, Sweden. The collection documents the late 1950s and 1960s folk music revival, and Izzy Young's contribution to the scene. Includes documentation about prominent musicians, poets, and dancers, and about concerts, music festivals, and music camps around the United States and in Sweden. Includes articles and writings about Bob Dylan and his musical career, and correspondence with significant figures in the folk music scene, such as Pete Seeger, Mark Moss, and Dick Waterman. Scrapbooks document concerts and other events, including the 1961 Washington Square Park Protest, which followed the New York Police Department's attempt to stop singing in the park. Audio recordings are of radio programs, and concerts that Young promoted, such as those with Hedy West, David Bromberg, Jean Ritchie, Elizabeth Cotten, and many others.
