Dr. John K. Bromilow
The Troubled Man from Colorado?
I may have happened on the source of this curious quote, which I think first appeared on the sleeve of Passing Through. In Hard Travelin': The Life and Legacy of Woody Guthrie there is a chapter by Harold Leventhal. In this, he writes: 'When I first met Cisco he was working in a mine out in Colorado. I gave him the money to come east..'' Now the book appeared long after the LP sleeve but I wonder if Harold Leventhal was originally the source for this curiosity. I've seen mistakes copied from book to book over years, even centuries, at times.
According the the Smithsonian-Folkways site the FBI was still looking for Cisco after his death. Why?
