    Folk hero defied black list - The Australian
    Harold Leventhal
    Folk music impresario. Born New York, May 24, 1919. Died New York, October 4, aged 86.

    HAROLD Leventhal appeared in a television documentary only a week before his death. In No Direction Home, Martin Scorsese's acclaimed documentary about Bob Dylan, he reminisced about his part in the singer's early career.
    Leventhal also became manager to Seeger's friend and colleague Guthrie who, with some irony, wrote his best-known song, This Land is Your Land, as an angry response to the flag-waving of God Bless America, composed by Berlin.
