Former C&C Teacher and Folk Icon Pete Seeger Dies at Age 94

Folk music icon and former C&C teacher (‘49-’50) Pete Seeger died yesterday at the age of 94. Many alumni who were asked to share memories of City and Country in honor of our Centennial remembered singing “If I Had a Hammer” and other songs with Pete.

Excerpt from Minutes of Staff Meeting, March 30, 1950: "[Students] sang with Pete Seeger and enjoyed it so much and sang with such enjoyment, the other people on the floor would come in to join them."

Pete Seeger returned to C&C in 1996, and performed for families at Church of the Village
