During World War II, Hugh Carey fought in France, Belgium, Holland and Germany, and attained the rank of major. After the service, he worked for many years as an executive in his brother Edward's Peerless Oil and Chemical Corporation. Not until 1960, when he was 41 years old, did Carey decide to run for political office. He won his first congressional race and during the 1960s developed a national reputation for his liberal attitude on education, and programs for the elderly and handicapped.
A: I started this project in 1961. â€¦ We analyzed 4,000 songs on a computer. Out of that has come a map of world culture. There are 10 big groups or styles of music. Stone age people have style 1. â€¦ We found there's a similarity of Patagonian music and Siberian, even though these people live near the opposite poles. â€¦ Along with studying song, we have also studied dance and conversation in the same way, from film. I probably have the biggest collection of dance film in the world â€” 200,000 feet. Maybe the New York Public Library has more, but that's specialized in fine art.
