The '60s: The Decade that Changed America
"Woodstock, Revisited: A conversation with publicist Rona Elliot and official Woodstock photographer Henry Diltz"

Elliot and Diltz’s appearance is part of the Oregon State University College of Liberal Arts’ series, “The 60s: The Decade that Changed America.” The series celebrates the cultural and artistic impact the 1960s have had on the past five decades of American life. The series was created by OSU’s director of performing arts, journalist and historian Bob Santelli.
Rona Elliot has given us intimate looks at the lives of some of rock’s greatest singers, songwriters and performers including The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Tina Turner, Eric Clapton, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and more. As U.S. editor of the recent “Woodstock 40,” book and multimedia boxed set, Elliot conducted dozens of interviews and organized a wealth of stories, historical documents and essays about Woodstock.  
Folk musician and self-taught photographer Henry Diltz’s work has graced more than 200 album covers, as well as books, magazines and galleries worldwide. His stunning stage shots and warm, intimate images of stars like Chuck Berry, James Taylor and Joni Mitchell have brought us closer to music’s most familiar faces.
