Folk singer Pete Seeger carried more than his banjo with him when he stepped off the plane in Burbank. He carried a legend that his fans have built around him. Although he dislikes the title, he's known as the "high priest" of folk music - a musical form that came under attack Thursday in Los Angeles. The Fire and Police Research Association charged there is more to folk singing than meets the ear. Charging that hootenannies are infiltrated by Communists, the group called for a congressional investigation of the folk music field. A resolution adopted by the association suggested folk music is used to further Red aims. Photograph dated August 16, 1963.; See image #00118613 for additional photo in this series.
