Biographical Sketch:

Maxine Crissman (aka Lefty Lou) was Woody Guthrie’s partner on KFVD radio when he lived in Los Angeles, California, after traveling their with the Dust Bowl migration. The “Woody and Lefty Lou Show” aired from the tail of 1936 through 1938. Woody lived at the Crissman residence during this time.
