Surviving members of the Folkmen, a late ’60s music group made up of students from Indiana State College and later IUP, established a scholarship last year to help support students majoring in music or music education at IUP. The group’s surviving members are David Frye ’68, Alan Luckey ’87, M’89, Bruce Bly, Larry Carter, Fred Danziger, and George “Woody” Woodbury. The group also included the late Mike Dubois ’68, Warren Allen ’69, Jeff Kelley ’69, and D. C. Fitzgerald.
