|Opening Day at America Sings, Tomorrowland, June 29, 1974|
Such an uproar of interest in America Sings when I posted the opening day photo last Friday, that I thought I'd try it again. A different photo this time. Since my fellow fellow Todd was scanning the crowd for Burl Ives, I thought I'd give him more crowd to scan. He should be pretty easy to see! (Or at least it looks like him to me.) I am not aware if Burl Ives was indeed in attendance (of the opening shots that I have here at the Institute, I could not see him for real ... and I haven't pulled the Institute file on America Sings, which I know has all the opening day material, press releases, etc.--sorry, lazy historian today, other historical work keeping me busy), but it stands to reason he may have been. Anyway, just wanted to keep the America Sings love-a-thon going. Glad that Institute readers are as much in love with this fantastic attraction as the Institute fellows. Enjoy!
