Folk legend Pete Seeger dead at 94

BEACON, N.Y.  —  Pete Seeger, who overcame blacklisting under McCarthyism to become one of the voices of a generation’s conscience in the 1960s, died of natural causes at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. Songs like “We Shall Overcome,” “Where Have All the Flowers Gone?” and “If I Had a Hammer” galvanized the antiwar movement and inspired such greats as Bob Dylan and Don McLean. Seeger’s wife Toshi pre-deceased him last year.
