TULSA, Okla. (AP) - The Woody Guthrie Center will soon house singer Phil Ochs’ archive consisting of Ochs’ lyrics, posters, songbooks, photos, videos and more. The collection, donated by the singer’s daughter, will be unveiled at an event later this fall.
Ochs wrote hundreds of songs and released eight albums in the 1960s and 70s. Songs like “I Ain’t Marching Anymore,” ”Changes,” ”Power and the Glory” and “The War Is Over” are among his most popular songs.
Researchers will also have access to tapes and videos of Ochs’ television appearances, scrapbooks, articles written by and about Ochs and numerous photos.
The Woody Guthrie Center opened in 2013 in downtown Tulsa and honors the folk-singing legend with interactive exhibits, an extensive archive and a concert series that serves as a lasting tribute to his legacy.
