Abstract

In 1941 the Bonneville Power Administration (BPA) commissioned folk singer Woody Guthrie to write music for film and broadcasts. He wrote 26 songs for BPA in one month of employment. This Columbia River Song Collection had two main narratives : migrant's tales and the progressive force of electrification. The paper concludes with an examination of Woody Guthrie as narrator and finds that he was primarily a social documentarist in the Collection. - (SLD)
