[New York: Gerdes Folk City, 1961. Broadside, 11" x 8½", previous folds, a slight wrinkle or two, very good. Rare Gerdes Folk City advertising broadside for a series of Dylan performances in the autumn of 1961. At this point Dylan is just becoming a known entity in lower Manhattan - he had left Minnesota in January and by February he starfted playing in clubs and befriending musicians. In April he played a 2-week gig at Gerdes backing John Lee Hooker. And by September, after John Shelton had seen Dylan at one of the Gerdes performances and reviewed it in the New York Times, Dylan didn't look back. This copy comes from the estate of Dylan's friend in the Twin Cities, Dave (a.k.a.Tony) Glover. The top right corner bears the date "(1961)" in pencil in Glover's hand. And on the verso are other notes by Glover: "David White / St. Paul Macal - prof / mystic c.o. [underline] Mulford Q. Sibley / Prof. Political Science / at U. St. Paul (?) [underline] Grand Ave off Snelling / M18-3285." At the time David White was a young professor of philosophy at Macalister College. He taught at Macalister for 50 years, dying in 2009, and published a noteworthy and acclaimed translation of the Bhagavad Gita. Mulford Quickert Sibley (1912-1989) was a professor of political science at the University of Minnesota, a controversial advocate of socialism and pacifism. It is noted that Garrison Keillor picked up the habit of wearing red socks from Sibley. OCLC locates one copy at.
