Biographical Sketch:

Ronald Cohen was born in Los Angeles in 1940, and in the mid-1950s his brother discovered folk music, bringing home records by the Weavers, Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, and similar folk artists of the time. This started Cohen on the road to loving and collecting folk music. In the 1980s he began research on the folk music revival, resulting in RAINBOW QUEST.

This reference book collection is part of the Ronald D. Cohen Folk Music Research Collection, and was assigned a separate designation due to the size of the collection and the circulating option for accessibility.
