About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Jackie Guthrie: 1944-2012

Jackie Guthrie: 1944-2012

On just learning of the passing of Jackie Guthrie, Arlo's wife, I had to wonder where does the time go and how fast it goes there. Was it that long ago I took pictures of these kids getting married? View full size.

Just a thought

If one of you talented people would like to colorize this I think that may be quite
interesting. And, if so, I would be happy to send you the big picture.

Jackie Guthrie

I did some business with Jackie and Arlo in 1992, when Arlo recorded a song that I co-wrote. One late afternoon, I and my co-writer shared a pizza with them and his band at their church in the Housatonic section of Great Barrington. They were as gracious as anyone could be. Jackie was a lot of fun to be with. She laughed a lot, talked up a storm, and had lots of interesting stories about the music business. Arlo was surprisingly shy, and seemed content to just gaze upon Jackie with obvious admiration. My heart goes out to his family.

She walks in beauty

How gracious and serene she appears. With that laced-up blouse and those belling sleeves, they look like extras from a Renaissance film.

43 years

Thats a long time to stay married....especially in the entertainment industry. They are truly remarkable folks, and surely deserved another 43 years together.

Thanks for sharing that Rip. I hadn't heard the news until I saw this.

Generations of Guthries

From Woody, to Arlo and Jackie's grandchildren, talent, musical and otherwise is abundant among the Guthries. Arlo's concerts are must see events.

Arlo's status on his Facebook page

Is, of course, beautifully eloquent and very touching.
It's a public post so you don't need to be a FB user to read it.
I suggest having a tissue handy.

Jackie and Arlo

The smaller picture looks better. This is from a scanned print that amongst many others my ex-wife's cats used as a litter box. I had not the time to restore this in Photoshop.... thus, enlarged Arlo's face looks pretty grungy. Originally taken with a Leica M-2 and Tri-X. Thanks for lookin'.

[And thank you! Any further details you'd like to share? - tterrace]
Yeah, Judy Collins was there and has the most beautiful eyes I've ever seen!
