    I met Pete Seeger in 1959 and 1960 when i worked as a mennonite volunteer at Wiltwyck School for Boys. I would drive him and the steel band to concerts at college campus’s. After one concert at Bard we stopped for coffee and chatted. Mr Seeger rode in the bus with the steel band and me as the driver. He was a down to earth, humble man. I was a conscientious objector serving my God and country but I never heard Mr Seger relate his story at the time. Recently I watched the NPR biographic of Mr Seeger’s life and I was disappointed that nothing was said of his gift and dedication to the boys at Wiltwyck School. I would like to get in touch with him as well as Kim Loy Wong who chisled the drums at Wiltwyck. El Siebert Omaha Ne 68111
