Marjorie Guthrie had a dream where future generations would have the support of a strong community of patients, doctors, caregivers, social workers, and even legislation to help families living with Huntington's Disease. She believed that no one should go through this alone!

The premier not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of everyone affected by Huntington’s disease and their families. From community services and education to advocacy and research, HDSA is the world’s leader in providing help for today, hope for tomorrow for people with Huntington’s disease and their family.

The organization was founded on September 18, 1967 by Marjorie Guthrie, the wife of legendary folk singer Woody Guthrie who had this fatal illness. Woody succombed to complications of Huntington's on October 3, 1967 when he was only 55 years old, but the Guthrie family legacy lives on at HDSA to this day.

To learn more about Huntington's disease & the work of the Huntington's Disease Society of America please visit HDSA.org.

 


Marjorie also saved all of Woody's creative works so that one day his legacy could inspire a new generation through a permanent exhibition. After 25 years in New York City under the direction of their daughter Nora Guthrie, the Woody Guthrie Archives moved down to Tulsa, Oklahoma where The Woody Guthrie Center was established in 2013. The center was curated and designed by Nora Guthrie, Bob Santelli and the GRAMMY Museum, and the George Kaiser Family Foundation.

Dedicated to spreading Woody's message of diversity, equality and social justice. In today's world, where it seems intolerance, bigotry and violence are on the rise, it's an honor to share his positive message with a new generation that can create its own ripples of change. Our facility honors Woody's life and legacy by educating visitors of his relevance today and his important role in American history. For more information, visit WoodyGuthrieCenter.org
