One of the important people of the rock era, Max Yasgur was born on December 15 in 1919 in a Jewish family. Yasgurs place in rock history came nearly five decades later. He was the owner of the dairy farm that hosted the Woodstock Music and Art Fair, a 3 day festival which was held between August 15 and August 18, 1969.
After other towns in New York rejected the idea of hosting the festival, Yasgur leased a field in Bethel, New York to the concert organizers. The 49-year-old farmer was paid for the lease. But he also proved his generosity.
When Yasgur noticed that such a large number of people showed up for the concert, he made sure that that there was enough dairy products to feed the concert-goers.
Many of his neighbors were angry at him for allowing his land to be used for the concert. Brian Doyle wrote in The Sudden City in the issue of The Sun magazine, Max had a great heart. Doyle uses Yasgurs acts of kindness to remind us in todays cynical world that there are people everywhere doing good things to help others.
Without Yasgur, Woodstock would never have happened. Yasgurs generosity reminds us to be nice to others. On top of that, he also helped set the table for a concert that emerged as a symbol of people coming together in peace and love.
