SIM-31: A Guide to the Staten Island Friends of Clearwater Collection
Scope and Contents
The bulk of this collection consists of materials produced by Hudson Sloop Clearwater, Inc., a non-profit organization founded by folk singer Pete Seeger with his wife Toshi Seeger in 1966. The organization played a crucial role in the reclamation of the Hudson River utilizing a sailing sloop, named Clearwater, and an annual music and environmental festival as public education tools, as well as practicing a wide range of activism and advocacy. A group of Staten Islanders formed Staten Island Friends of Clearwater to support the larger organization and practice advocacy and public education on Staten Island to protect and improve environmental conditions of the Hudson estuary surrounding Staten Island.
