Mary Travers dies at 72

The famous American folk singer and member of the trio Peter, Paul and Mary died of cancer on September 16 at the age of 72. For many of us baby boomers, Peter Yarrow, (Noel) Paul Stookey and Mary Travers were our heroes, singing songs with them like Puff the magic dragon, If I had a hammer, We shall overcome, and so on. The trio remained active over the decades, not only singing, but in advocating for human rights and peace around the globe. You can read more here and the trio’s web site here. Us baby boomers will miss Mary, blessed be her memory.
