Porter, petite and weighing approximately 100 pounds, hauled a clunky Sound Scriber to do her field recordings.
“Pete Seeger presented her with the Wollensak, reel-to-reel tape recorder,” Rosemeyer said. “He presented her with that at the concert for her to continue her work recording.”
Seeger also performed a Lake Placid concert on July 5, 1971.
“It was just a regular concert,” said Knight, who performed professionally with Seeger half a dozen times. “It was held at the Lake Placid High School. The American Legion tried to get it canceled, and the school board held firm. I wrote a letter to the Adirondack Daily Enterprise about freedom of speech.”
