BOX 172-184, 253-254, 260, 263, 266 MAPCASE-FOLDER 3-5, 7; 13-14 Subject Files, 1921-2002
The Subject Files subseries contains materials related to three separate topical areas significant to MacColl and Seeger: folk music and performance, political campaigning, and theater.

The Folk Music sub-subseries is the most extensive. Much of the material included here came to Peggy Seeger in her role as the contact person for the Singers Club; it provides information about the folk music scene during the folk revival and beyond. Folk club newsletters and directories provide information on organization and performer activities throughout the United Kingdom as do an extensive set of questionnaire responses solicited by Seeger. Promotional posters and brochures from agents, festivals, and record labels provide concert line ups, performer biographies, and tour dates.

EM and PS’s touring career together and their solo tours are well-documented here through detailed program books listing thirty years of concert locations and dates, concert programs and flyers, and reviews and set lists. Additional set lists can be found in the Singers Club files.

In addition to these primary source materials there are articles on folk music and the revival including three unpublished theses.

Political Campaigning materials provide a glimpse into MacColl and, particularly, Seeger's late 20th century political concerns particularly nuclear power and its local impact. Other topics of interest include apartheid and the Nixon and Reagan presidencies. Similar material on women's issues is located in Resources.

MacColl maintained a keen interest in theatre after leaving the Theatre Workshop in the 1950s. He continued to write plays and see his plays performed. The Theater materials document this interest through posters, programs, and scripts produced by English and Scottish theater groups.

Materials consist of articles, brochures and flyers, catalogs, clippings, correspondence, lyric sheets, newsletters, performance programs, photographs, poems, posters, program books, questionnaires, scripts, songbooks, and transcripts.
Arranged into three sub-subseries or file units: Folk Music, Political Campaigning, and Theatre.

Materials consist of articles, brochures and flyers, catalogs, clippings, correspondence, lyric sheets, newsletters, performance programs, photographs, poems, program books, questionnaires, scripts, songbooks, and transcripts.
