WASHINGTON (AP) - The Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery is installing a photograph of Pete Seeger to honor the musician and activist who died this week.

The museum says the portrait will remain on view indefinitely. The photograph was taken by Sid Grossman between 1946 and 1948. It was installed Tuesday in a first-floor gallery designated for remembrance of recently deceased people who are represented in the museum’s collection.

Seeger died Monday night at age 94. The veteran folk singer wrote or co-wrote “If I Had a Hammer,” ”Turn, Turn, Turn,” ”Where Have All the Flowers Gone” and “Kisses Sweeter Than Wine.”

Seeger recorded dozens of albums and singles in his long career.
