BOX 236 Correspondence, 1954-1959, 1995
see also Letters to Family

The bulk of the subseries consists of correspondence between Peggy Seeger and her father, Charles L. Seeger, Jr., and very occasionally, her sisters Barbara and Penelope. PS discusses her life in Europe, first at her brother, Charles Seeger III's, house and then her travels in eastern Europe, Russia, and China. CLS discusses his concern for Peggy and his changing life following the death of RCS and his marriage to Margaret Taylor. PS also dicusses her burgeoning relationship with Ewan MacColl and her pregnancy with son Neill. A significantly smaller set of letters addressed to her children covers PS's 1995 travels across the United States with Irene Pyper-Scott.
